Community Feast & Handfasting Ceremony


If you ordered a Feast Box, you can pick it up at The Depot at 716 Elk Avenue, Crested Butte on Thursday, September 17, 6 – 8 p.m. or Friday, September 18, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The locally and regionally harvested, organic Vinotok Community Feast is on with feast boxes! These delightful boxes are an experience in and of themselves, each containing all the raw ingredients necessary for you and the loved ones of your household to prepare the full feast (excluding staples such as salt or oil) at home, accompanied by traditional recipes (some by our very own old-timers) and instructions; special Vinotok bread from Mountain Oven; homemade pickles from Ellen’s pickles; and flowers for the table. Each box also contains a blessing from the Harvest Mother and Green Man; a traditional potica bread family recipe from generational Buttian Trudy Yaklich; and a Grump & Gratitude form all designed with original artwork and calligraphy by Peggy Morgan Stenmark. Our very own local Buckel Family Wines has brewed a very special Vinotok Village Zinfandel for the occasion with original label artwork by Steph White. Buy an extra bottle of this special wine for an additional $24 at Mountain Spirits Liquors while supplies last.

Then, while you’re stirring up your delectable feast, tune into KBUT, the tie that binds us, for a non-denominational Community Handfasting Ceremony with Marcie Telander, D.Div. as we commit to the protection of each other and of our land – together! Following, local songbird Lizzy Plotkin plays us her traditional and original songs to further concoct the perfect “apart-together” ambiance. Call in live to KBUT to dedicate toasts to community members and dedications for a more positive and transformative future.

The Community Feast is a lovely way to financially support Vinotok and our full week of offerings, while settling in and getting cozy, warming up the kitchen, and uniting through radio entertainment on KBUT.

$70 for a box for 2; $140 for a box for 4 ($35 per meal), each includes a complimentary bottle of Vinotok Village Zinfandel.
