About the Black Dirt Feast

The Fifteenth Annual Black Dirt Feast is an extraordinary outdoor farm-to-table banquet.

Hosted by the Pine Island Chamber of Commerce, The Feast features dishes created by award-winning local chefs. These chefs have long-term relationships with farmers throughout our region. The farms are known for diversity in their crops and their emphasis on sustainability.

Guests are seated Tuscan-style at long tables under a welcoming tent. A special seven-course tasting menu is created each year for this event.

This year’s Feast location is Social Island, in Pine Island NY. The venue is set among black dirt fields, accented by wildflowers with a spectacular sunset view. Regional musicians perform live jazz music throughout the evening.

High School students volunteer at the Feast as wait staff, food runners, setup and cleanup crews. The students earn hours of community service, a Warwick school district graduation requirement.

Funds from the Feast support the Black Dirt Scholarship Fund with four scholarships of $1500 each to local graduates. Th event also supports five local food pantries. The Feast has generated over $50,000 in scholarship funds and donations over the past 15 years.

Tickets are $150 each. Tickets are limited; get yours soon. Questions? Please email the Chamber at
