The John Bemis Community Potluck, a beloved free, community Thanksgiving event for more than 30 years, returns to Snowmass on Sunday, November 19 from 4:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Viewline Resort Snowmass, Autograph Collection.
“I love the Community Potluck. The event is the kickoff to winter, and it allows our community to gather, share their favorite side dish and enjoy the fellowship of our village,” says Bill Madsen, Mayor, Town of Snowmass Village. “We are all Snowmass Village people, and the Community Potluck brings full-time residents, part-time residents, and seasonal workers together to share a meal and connect. Thank you to the Bemis family, the Viewline Resort Snowmass, and all the sponsors for making the dinner possible.”
The event began in the late 1980s as a small gathering at the Snowmass Chapel and has grown over the years to include 500+ people. This year, doors and a cash bar open at 4:30 p.m., while the community blessing takes place at 5:00 p.m. Dinner will be served at 5:15 p.m.
As in the past, the menu includes turkey, baked ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole, roasted squash and carrots, plus rolls, and cranberry sauce. Community members are encouraged to bring a dish to share. Last names beginning A-K, are asked to bring a side/salad; L-Z last names should bring a dessert. In addition, all are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the local non-profit Harvest For Hunger. Recommended items include canned and boxed stews, chili, soup, nuts, pasta, sauce, peanut butter, tuna, oatmeal, rice, beans, and macaroni & cheese.
Thanks to generous support from the Viewline Resort Snowmass, Snowmass Village Rotary Club, Alpine Bank, the Snowmass Chapel, Eastwood Investments, Romero Group, East West Partners, and the Town of Snowmass Village, this free event is open to members of the Snowmass community.
