St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington will present its Summer Food Festival Aug. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will feature food from local restaurants, growers and food and beverage suppliers, the sale of kitchen and cooking supplies, books, spices and herbs, and children's activities.

Church members will sell the church's cookbook, gift cards, small potted plants, gardening gloves, lavender sachets, peach chutney, hot dogs and lemonade.

Children's activities will include storytelling, puppeteers, fudge making and visits and readings with Nancy Tafuri.

Parking will be available in the lot between the church and the parish house off Green Hill Road.

A special summer harvest dinner will follow the festival, with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m., in the parish house.

Tickets to the dinner are $75 per person.

Twenty percent of all proceeds will support the St. John's Outreach Committee.
