The Driftless Farm & Food Weekend is an annual celebration in Dubuque, IA of local farmers, chefs, and community organizations transforming our food system from the ground up. Through a series of events including the Driftless Farm Crawl & Farm to Table Dinner, the weekend brings together people who care about the food they eat with the people growing it, all the while supporting year-round local foods education in our community.
