Coastal Roots Farm and The Hive at Leichtag Commons to host drive-thru Sukkot Harvest Festival
Coastal Roots Farm and The Hive at Leichtag Commons will host the 8th Annual Sukkot Harvest Festival with a unique drive-thru experience Oct. 5-8.
During the holiday of Sukkot, Jewish communities traditionally gather outdoors to celebrate the end of an abundant summer harvest and welcome in the fall season and all it brings. The Sukkah structure represents a spirit of radical hospitality. Historically, the Sukkot Harvest Festival has been Coastal Roots Farm’s biggest event of the year. This year, while the Farm is not able to gather in the traditional sense, the Farm is happy to still bring community members of all backgrounds together to experience Sukkot in a more socially distanced way.
This year’s drive-thru, hour-long event, includes:
A guided smartphone audio tour around the property to learn all about Sukkot (No smartphone? No problem! The Farm has it covered.)
A community color-by-number mural where each car will be invited one-by-one to add their own touch to this year’s Sukkah.
Exploring the symbolic lulav and etrog, and reflecting on how to show up as one’s best self.
A chance to write one’s wishes for the future.
An inside peek of what is growing on the Farm.
Guests can choose from multiple dates and time slots, including:
Monday, Oct. 5 at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., or 4 p.m.
Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m., or 1 p.m.
Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., or 4 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 8 at 3 p.m., 4 p.m., or 5 p.m.
Tickets for the Sukkot Harvest Festival are suggested donations and—like the Farm Stand produce—are offered on a pay-what-you-can basis. The Farm is committed to ensuring that everyone in the community has access to education and community building, as well as fresh, locally grown, organic produce. Suggested event prices are $12/adult and $6/child.
Masks are required for any Sukkot activities outside the vehicles. iPads will be available for guests who do not have a smartphone.
