The third annual Festival at the Farm, presented by Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs, will return to Prowse Farm in Canton, MA this fall. Festival at the Farm is a one-of-a-kind event bringing all ages together for live music, local food and drink, backyard games and an on-site farmers market featuring local farmers, non-profits and inspired craft vendors.
Produced by Six Chair Productions, the festival will take place September 15-16, 2018. Get tickets at www.festivalatthefarm.com.
The festival will feature two stages of nationally-known artists alongside some of Boston’s best local acts. Saturday’s headliner is Amos Lee, joined by Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, Amy Helm, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Caitlyn Smith, Will Dailey, and Jesse Dee. On Sunday, Dawes toplines with Martin Sexton, Joseph, The Wild Reeds, The Suitcase Junket, Upstate Rubdown, The Silks, and Ali McGuirk.
Local vendors will provide great food and drink all day long. Selected food vendors include Commonwealth Cambridge, Hank’s Clam Shack, The Bacon Truck, and more. More food, fashion, art, and jewelry will be sold at the Farmers Market.
The Free Range Kids Zone, inspired by Pete and Gerry’s free range hens, who have ample room to roam on the farm, will feature a host of interactive games and activities including face-painting, storytelling with Big Joe the Storyteller, and Magic with Awesome Rob, as well as hen petting with Pete and Gerry’s Organic hens and Meet-A-Farmer, providing families the opportunity to interact with a Pete and Gerry’s Organic farmer. Kids Really Rock All-Star Jam will feature daily live music from Karen K. and the Jitterbugs alongside a who’s who of New England Kids musical artists.
Six Chair Productions also announced that they have set a goal to help provide 100,000 meals to those in need through support of the Greater Boston Food Bank. As a part of this effort, a portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank and Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs will donate one dozen eggs for every ticket sold. Fans will be able to take part in the fundraising by making online donations at ticketing checkout as well as through select activities at the festival.
