Warkworth has a LongLunch on a big, long red+white gingham cloth draped table stretching down Main Street on Sunday August 21st starting at 11:30AM and going to 3:00PM and you are invited. This is no small shindig – but a hub of activities all day long.
Come for the hospitality and fine service as seen in the table settings:
Seeing what stylish table settings will be featured each year is part of the fun.
Come enjoy barbecued beef or pork, potato salad, corn, beans, pickles and horse radish.
Here are the talented chefs creating the afternoon feast.
Come enjoy the tasty desserts inspired by the vaunted Warkworth Country Pie Competition:
Tasty pies indeed!
Come for the music of the Dixie Dudes:
The ragtime to jazz is lots of fun – don’t be surprised to find a few flappers dancing to the tunes.
Come see six Spirit of the Hills artists in action.
See live what the artists’ palettes can truly create. 6 artists will be working in their favorite media along Main Street’s Long Lunch site. This is a great opportunity to take photos for the Warkworth Library – Long Lunch Photo Contest[see just below].
