Harvest Luncheon at Fort Ross Orchard

Harvest Luncheon at Fort Ross Orchard

Beautiful table setting at the Grand Luncheon

Saturday, October 5th, 12:30 – 2:30 pm.

We invite you to join us for a lunch in the historic Fort Ross Orchard with chef Pete Coleman preparing a feast of seasonal fare and local wines. This event is SOLD OUT. Thank you for supporting Fort Ross Education Fund!

The Gran Fondo Bike Race is taking place across Sonoma County on October 5th. We recommend you avoid River Road between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.  After 10:30 a.m. we recommend you take River Road to Jenner (do NOT take Highway 1 through Bodega Bay). Please check google maps before leaving. We suggest you stay at Fort Ross until at least 3:00 p.m. to avoid southbound traffic. Please park in the main parking lot at Fort Ross State Historic Park and take the shuttle up to the orchard.
