Farmfest 2018 - August 9-12

NO PETS PLEASE...PRETTY PLEASE....NO PETS...OKAY?

logo 2018 largeFarmfest is a relaxed and intimate music festival the second full weekend of August, in the beautiful Michigan north woods, the highlight of August for Michigan folk aficionados. The Farmfest main stage sits at the bottom of a visually and acoustically beautiful natural amphitheater. The stage was crafted of recycled wood from the barn that once stood at the top of the hill. The lineup tends to feature some of the best Michigan folk-spirited acts, from traditional folk and bluegrass to modern reggae and folk-flavored rock'n'roll. Come camp on site, or drive out for the day.

GATES OPEN on Thursday at noon. Stay through Monday morning if you like. Farmfest is a four-day Mooosical Magical happening. It's a musician's playground, so if you like to jam bring your instruments. Sign up for the Second Stage sets, but do it early because if fills up fast. Main stage music begins on Friday. Drum Kiva, Fire Circle Jams, Dance Pavilion Events, Feedbag Café and Pub, Parkin' Lot Pickin', Candle Light Labyrinth Walk, Second Stage Open Mic, Kids-Kids-Kids Stuff!, Workshops, Gardening fun, Great Food, and Morning Yoga, Sacred Land.

Farmfest is over the top with Michigan musicians. SO many Michigan musicians are finding sponsors. We are still the best bang for your buck when it comes to Michigan festivals. Tickets are $95 at the gate for your weekend pass -- this includes camping. Volunteers get in for $25. Volunteers and Vendors are welcome to come set up camp on Wednesday. Go to our Volunteers or Vendors pages to sign up.

Consider becoming a Farmfest sponsor. Without sponsors, this ole farmer gal could NO WAY put on such an event. Check it out on our Sponsors page.

AND NO PETS....We try really hard to get the NO PETS rule out there, but they come anyway...every year. PLEASE don't bring your pets. We LOVE dogs and cats and birds and all the loved critters of the world, but please find a sitter for the weekend.

Hugs to All,

Stacy Jo

Late June 2019: Get ‘er Done Vounteer Work Weekend

Preparing the farm for Farmfest is always a very rewarding experience. This is the time we can get creative. What is it that you would like to see added to the land? Let us know and help manifest it.

Of course there are the usual annual items that need to be done: Cow barrels, butt cans, prepping the stages and clearing the trails. Weed whacking and mowing. Organizing the kitchen. Etc etc etc.

Bring camping gear, food to share, instruments and a festive heart. It’s a great time to Git ‘er Done and together it is easy to do just that! AND of course you receive your Farmfest weekend pass before you go home.
