In Sonoma County, fermentation's the name and producing farm-fresh products is the game. Since moving from its original location in 2012 from Freestone to Santa Rosa, the Farm to Fermentation Festival continues its run while supporting a notable cause by partnering with Ales for Autism. This nonprofit charity works to preserve the craft beer movement by offering events with educational aspects and, as a result, raising money for schools and programs in Sonoma County.

By teaming up with local beverage crafters, the festival provides an adult ticket option this year for the Libation Lounge, hosted by the Russian River and HenHouse brewing companies. But it's not all alcohol: festival-goers can learn about and take part in the fermentation process of kombucha, pickles, cheese, vinegar, yogurt, sauerkraut and more. Keynote speakers include fermentation advocate Emma Christensen, author and veggie queen Jill Nussinow, Nourished Kitchen blogger Jenny McGruther and food reviewer Jeff Cox.

The Farm to Fermentation Festival arrives on Sunday, Aug. 18, at the Finley Community Center. 2060 W. College Ave., Santa Rosa. 11am–5pm. $25–$50. 707.543.3737.
