2019 Heritage Harvest Festival

September 21, 2019 10:00 am - 05:00 pm
Location: Monticello, Thomas Jefferson Parkway 931, Charlottesville, Virginia

Thomas Jefferson championed vegetable cuisine, plant experimentation, and sustainable agriculture. The 13th Annual Heritage Harvest Festival, hosted by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in partnership with Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, and Seed Savers Exchange celebrates Jefferson’s legacy, and the contributions to American cuisine by enslaved workers, in a family-friendly, exciting, affordable and fun-filled atmosphere, promoting gardening, sustainability, local food, and the preservation of heritage plants. 

The 2019 Heritage Harvest Festival will be held on Saturday, September 21, at Monticello, from 10am - 5pm: on the historic West Lawn, in the vegetable garden, and in Jefferson’s Lower Grove. The venue provides a beautiful showcase for the restored gardens and features the wealth of Monticello’s programs in not just gardening, but also natural history, foodways, and the roles of the entire plantation community.
