Drum Kiva:

Tweeners will perform at the Feedbag Cafe during the pauses between the main stage events, and late into the night. Check the schedule posted at the Cafe for exact times.

Labyrinth Walk:

Labyrinths have been traced to the cradle of Western civilization in the Mediterranean, in the margins of medieval texts, in Christian cathedrals of France, in the fields of England and Ireland, on church walls throughout Scandinavia and painted on drums of American native tribes. They have been found in India, Yugoslavia, Turkey, Spain, Wales, Peru and Italy. Some date back to 750BC.

Candles will be available after dark on Saturday. Walk the labrinth and place your candle within it.

Tractor Trolley Ride to Church:

Farmfest folk! Even though we come from different paths and different beliefs, here is a chance for us to experience a little piece of local history and enjoy a Christian gathering you soon won't forget.

Walking into a Sunday morning service is like walking into a time machine. One is transformed back in time to a place where the community either walked to church or came in buggies and wagons. The pews are built from the original cast iron frames with wooden seats and backs. Music is sung a cappella from a Psalter, the book of Psalms put to music. The pulpit is simple and plain. Even the doctrine has been persevered and comes from the time of John Calvin, a prominent reformer of the mid 1500's delivered by by Reverend Roger Adams. Members are few in number these days, but strong in heart.

If you love old time worship and/or love to sing, this is a perfect event for you. Let's fill this beautiful church with beautiful Farmfolk voices, listen to an old time gospel rooted sermon and fellowship with a local neighbors. Please join us. Come as you are, barefoot, tie-dyed, and happy! All are welcome!
