Event description
HFSDV 25th Anniversary Party/talk by William Woys Weaver on Foods of the Centennial International Exhibition of 1876 and historic potluck

About this Event

Come celebrate the 25th Anniversary of HFSDV and the people who helped start the organization. We will gather at a wonderful new site overlooking an abandoned reservoir in Fairmont Park. Hear William Woys Weaver, talk about the Food of the Centennial International Exhibition of 1876.

This will be a potluck event. We are asking that everyone bring a historic dish taken from a recipe from the National Cookery Book which was compiled for the Centennial celebration in 1876 in Philadelphia by the Women's Centennial Committees. Reprints of the book are fairly easy to find on a variety of sites on the internet where books are sold.

There is ample free parking at the Discovery Center, a newly construction facility by the National Audobon Society and the Philadelphia Outward Bound School just blocks from the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood where a century-old abandoned reservoir that has been converted into a unique wildlife sanctuary. www.discoveryphila.org
