Vale, NC – Join us for a Sweet Hart Pioneer Dinner. A one-of-a-kind dinner experience! Using a traditional 1800s cookbook, Chef Ben Sullivan has crafted a four-course dinner that embraces our ancestral roots with an upscale, modern twist.Sweet Hart Pioneer Dinner

This event will showcase traditional fiber artisans and two of Hart Square Village’s priority historic restoration projects, the preservation of the Barger Weaving House, circa 1859, and the Punch-Seitz House, circa 1840.

Artisans will demonstrate everything from spinning, to tatting, to weaving. A silent auction will take place featuring items crafted by our artisans: pottery, fiber arts, blacksmith ironworks, and more.

A welcome drink will be provided to you upon arrival, and a cash bar will be available throughout the event.
