VAN WERT — Historic Main Street Van Wert has announced the first Farm to Table event which will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7 from 6 to 11 p.m. on Main Street outside the Courthouse.

Money raised during this event enables the mission of the Historic Main Street Van Wert to stimulate growth and development in Historic Downtown Van Wert. This includes parklets outdoor dining, bike racks, and water stations to make the downtown more vibrant. Equally important, the group wants the Farm to Table event to be a unique gathering place for the residents of the Van Wert area - where people can get together for great food, great music, and a lot of fun.

The group will use local farmers to bring Farm to Table to Van Wert. The four-course meal served will have a local feel crafting the appetizer and Truly Divine providing the dessert. The Willow Bend chef will bring the meal alive. The cost is $50 per ticket. Tickets are available at 136 E Main Street or online at
