It’s harvest time, and all are invited to celebrate at Capay Crush, Capay Organic’s third annual grape festival, from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. Event proceeds benefit the Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture.

“American Idol” singer Crystal Bowersox, who was the first runner-up in the ninth season of the popular show, will headline the entertainment for the evening. Naia Kete, seen on “The Voice,” will open the show at 5 p.m. Bowersox will take the stage at 7 p.m.

In addition to nationally known talent, the grape crush will be celebrated with tastings by local wineries Seka Hills, Turkovich Family Vineyards, Putah Creek Winery, Capay Valley Vineyards and Old Sugar Mill; grape stomping for fun; children’s arts and crafts; grape-themed activities; tractor-tram rides; and a harvest activity.

Yolo Farm to Fork will provide an educational hands-on activity, “Grain to Bread.” Children will be able to experience the transformative process of turning grain into their very own delicious pizza. The activity begins with locally grown wheat and takes children through the steps of bread-making — threshing, winnowing and grinding grain, then kneading dough, and baking pizza in a wood-fired oven provided by Caffé Italia.

Adults can order pizza too.

Other vendors for the event include Café Mugshot, Ruhstaller Beer, Wicked ‘Wich food truck and a local taco truck.

The Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture gives a scholarship each spring to a high school senior who plans to pursue studies related to sustainable agriculture. KBNP also donates school supplies to farmworker families in the Capay Valley. This August and September, the nonprofit donated more than 550 backpacks stocked with school supplies for local students.

“Celebrating products from our region and inviting people out to the land that grows their food is part of supporting the sustainable agriculture movement,” said Thaddeus Barsotti, farmer and co-owner of Capay Organic and Farm Fresh To You, it’s Community Supported Agriculture program. “Listening to live music on a cool, September evening and enjoying local food and wine — what could be better?”

Tickets are $15 each, available online through Sept. 19 at http://capaycrush2013.eventbrite.com. Day-of-event tickets will cost $20. Children 12 and under are free.

The farm is at 23800 State Highway 16 in Capay.
