The Austin Fermentation Festival is an educational event that celebrates all things fermented in Central Texas. This year's festival takes place on Sunday October 25, 2015 from 9am – 4pm at Barr Mansion.
The day will include a keynote with author, blogger and traditional foods advocate Jennifer McGruther of Nourished Kitchen and 12 additional fermentation workshops offered throughout the day covering topics such as cheese making, miso, sauerkraut, kombucha, charcuterie, beer, vinegars, lacto-fermented vegetables and more.
Back by popular demand is the community culture swap and new this year is a participatory kraut mob. Attendees can taste fermented foods and shop product vendors and books, enjoy festival-inspired lunch options for purchase from local purveyors, sip fermented beverages and alcohol, and stock up for future home fermenting at a mini farmers’ market.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Texas Farmers’ Market Farmer Emergency Fund, which offers financial assistance to TFM farmers and ranchers in times of environmental, personal or other crisis. All ticket sales final.
