2014 Carnivale Information and Slideshow



Distinguished guest speakers Michael Chiarello and Bryant Terry joined Grace Cathedral on Thursday, February 27, 2014 for Carnivale: Seeds of Transformation, a special evening that raised over $375,000 for our programs and launched a year-long focus on food and sustainability at the cathedral.

The evening celebrated a sustainable mindset by featuring an elegant vegetarian dinner by caterer Paula LeDuc, with ingredients all produced within 100 miles of San Francisco, and leftovers donated to Dinner with Grace. Chef, food justice activist and critically-acclaimed author Bryant Terry delivered magnificent and thought-provoking remarks on the connection between family, food, sustainability and our collective future.

It is our hope that Carnivale inspired all in attendance to learn more about the interfolds of the food system and its impact on the climate and our communities.

Proceeds from Carnivale provide significant support of Grace Cathedral’s innovative programs, service ministries, educational offerings and arts programs, enabling us to serve our community from our cathedral home, which is visited by over 100,000 people each year. Many thanks to our guests, sponsors and the supportive cathedral community for the continued goodwill and encouragement you invest!
