It’s autumn and you’re invited to the party.

Coppery maples, blazing oaks and abundant pumpkins mark the harvest season in Upper Bucks County.

It’s autumn and you’re invited to join the party.

The 9th annual Upper Bucks Foodie event will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 16, at Sands Chrysler Jeep Dodge located at 501 N. West End Blvd., Quakertown.

Bob Haag, Sands general manager, said he loves entertaining and meeting people in the community.

“It’s a regular (hosting) event for us, and it’s great to see so many of the (community), come and visit us in this place we call our second home,” Haag said.

Along with legacy heritage family farms, the Foodie has become synonymous with the area’s colorful harvest season and abundant food and drink offerings.

Restaurant owners and chefs begin their day before the crack of dawn. Vineyard owners check their DeChanauc and Chambourcin grape clusters regularly with attention and care, waiting for the precise moment of harvest.

Preparation for the Foodie is no different.

Harvests can’t be rushed, and the Foodie has been months in the making to offer visitors a premier experience, complete with entertainment.

An invitation to come to the table has been made.

Sample what area purveyors have to offer. Network and meet business owners, and decision makers at the Foodie, a rich place to spend an October evening.

Come out Thursday evening, and sample the growing wine, beer and spirits-making boutique industries right here in Bucks and the Greater Lehigh Valley.

Meet Upper Bucks food industry shakers doing what they love best.
