CACDA announces dates for annual community celebration, second annual art trail

— The Cazenovia Area Community Development Association (CACDA) has announced the dates for two of its upcoming annual events: the fifth annual “Farm & Fork” celebration and the second annual Cazenovia Art Trail.

The Farm & Fork community celebration will take place this year on Friday, Sept. 20. It will be hosted by Our Farm, a local agri-tourism destination on Peth Road owned by Jimmy and Janine Golub. Guests can enjoy an early fall evening on the farm with a sunset feast and lively entertainment overlooking scenic hillsides and farm fields.

“This annual event has grown into a fun celebration of some of the great things our community has to offer,” said CACDA Executive Director Lauren Lines. “We have enjoyed hosting this event on interesting and diverse farms each year. We encourage guests of all ages to come and enjoy an evening with friends and neighbors.”

In addition to a seasonal meal catered by the Lincklaen House, guests will enjoy music by The Jazz Police. This all-star sextet of Upstate New York’s finest jazz musicians will play classic “Blue Note” style jazz with a repertoire of classics from the 1940s through the present day.

Proceeds from this event will be used to further CACDA’s mission of enhancing economic vitality and preserving the rural, historic character of the region.

“This year we have been working hard on many projects and have been grateful for widespread community support,” said Kristi Andersen, CACDA board president.

Sponsors of this event include Oneida Savings Bank, Pro-Tel, Wine Guardian, a Division of Air Innovations, Syracuse New Times and Wegmans. Tickets may be purchased at cacda.net or by contacting the CACDA office at 655-7651 or lines@cacda.net.

This year’s second annual Cazenovia Art Trail event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 5, and Saturday, Oct. 12.

This event facilitates participating artists within the boundaries of the Cazenovia School District to open their working studios or to share space with other artists at a coordinated “art hub” so visitors may stop in to meet as many of the artists as they would like, see where and how the art is made and check out the artists’ finished art works.
