This is just one of the many locally produced items the Afternoon in the Country Festival will feature.

The 13th annual Afternoon in the Country Festival is coming soon to Serenbe, Atlanta. The fundraiser, hosted by Atlanta Les Dames d’ Escoffier International (LDEI), will take place on the Sunday Nov. 3, from 1p.m – 4 p.m.

LDEI is a women’s group that “fosters excellence and promotes the achievement of women in culinary professions through educational and charitable activities,” according to a press release. Their mission is “education, advocacy, and philanthropy.”

Part of the proceeds in their 13th annual event will go to Georgia Organics, a nonprofit organization that strives to enrich Georgia’s organic farming community, and Wholesome Wave, a nonprofit working to give more access to fresh, locally grown food.

The one-day event will be filled with entertainment and local, organic, food offerings. Visitors can enjoy more than 20 fine wines and premium micro-brews, as well as food from the more than 70 participating restaurants and chefs.

DriveTrain, a well-known bluegrass band, will be giving a live music performance, and other exciting events include a cake raffle featuring cakes from Atlanta’s top pastry chefs and a silent auction offering exclusive dining and travel packages.

To make sure not to miss out on the event, buy your ticket early, and for more information visit the Les Dames d’ Escoffier International homepage.
