Appleton's Father's Day Bluegrass Bash

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Bring a picnic blanket and load up the kids for a summer evening on the farm to celebrate the special fathers in your life. Enjoy dinner from a variety of local food trucks and beer and wine from Ipswich Ale and others. (As we book vendors we will update this page). Live bluegrass from Old Cold Tater!

Your family ticket pays for parking, lawn games, a visit with the farm animals, and live music from 5pm-7pm. Dinner from the food trucks and beer and wine, sold on site, are on you. The summer sunset over the farm fields, warm summer breeze (we hope!), and the memories you’ll make with friends and family are free! 

Make sure to pre-register, these tickets will go quickly. Food and beverages are purchased directly from our vendors, however if a member of your family had dietary restrictions please feel free to bring something from home. Beer and some food vendors are cash only.  Any proceeds help support our farm education programs. Day of ticket sales are not guaranteed.  

A family ticket allows 5 people into the event.  If you have more than 5 people in your party, please purchase additional family tickets as necessary.  1 family ticket = entry for 5 people, 2 family tickets= entry for 10, etc.

Rainy? We’ll still hold the event under our tent and in the Carriage Barn. Just bring an umbrella for your walk over from the parking area. Sorry, no BYOB, coolers, or dogs allowed.
