Connecticut River Museum’s 2017 Fall Feast, catered by the River Tavern’s Jonathan Rapp, will be a culinary celebration of the Connecticut River Valley.  On Saturday, Oct.14, Fall Feast guests will savor a delicious farm-to-table meal and enjoy a lively performance by the Amherst College, all-male a cappella group, The Zumbyes while overlooking beautiful Essex harbor.
