Join us for our sixth Field & Fork on Saturday, September 8, 2018! Field & Fork has become not only the signature annual event at The Parklands of Floyds Fork, but one of Louisville’s favorites. This unique fundraiser is hosted by and benefits The Parklands, one of the largest and most ambitious new urban parks in the nation operated by a nonprofit. An evening under the stars at the beautiful Brown-Forman Silo Center in Turkey Run Park is a real treat, celebrating philanthropy, food and music in authentic Kentucky style. The Parklands, a donor-supported public park, does not receive tax dollars to support annual operations. Field & Fork 2017 raised nearly $400,000 in support of The Parklands Fund, which works each year to keep The Parklands clean, safe, fun, beautiful and accessible to all ages and abilities.
The evening begins with a cocktail hour in the Hockensmith Barn followed by a three-course meal by Ladfyfingers Catering and an exciting live auction in a tent on the lawn. This year's live auction will feature the best of travel, wine and food, sure to appeal to a variety of audiences.
Stay afterwards for the Afterglow lounge presented by Butchertown Grocery and Atria Hospitality, complete with late-night treats, fire pits and stargazing.
Brown-Forman Silo Center in Turkey Run Park is located off the I-265 Billtown Road Exit. You may also access it from the newly opened Broad Run Park on Bardstown Road. Detailed directions will be provided to all guest prior to the event day.
Valet parking will be provided for all guests thanks to Tafel Motors.
