When’s the last time you got down at a hootenanny? Maybe you never did at all? In that case, save July 14 for a hootin and hollerin’ good time with Camphill Kimberton. Their Hootenanny, a festival of local music and food, will be held from 3-10 pm. There’s a jam packed schedule of events so the whole family can have fun.
Musicians scheduled to perform on the solar-paneled hay wagon stage include: Mostly Maybe, Dirk Quinn, Perseverance Jazz Band, and Big Bad Wolf. Jim Crater of Recycling Services will be helping to provide solar power.
The Hootenanny has been organized to celebrate the joy of local culture. In addition to the music, there will be games, face painting, hay rides and folk dancing. Local, organic food will be available for purchase. Bring your own reusable place settings and flatware to receive a discount on your food purchase. Children will have the chance to spot cows, chickens, sheep and more on the working dairy and vegetable farm.
The admission fee is $10, $8 in advance. Children 10 and under are free. Advance tickets can be purchased by contacting email@example.com or 610-935-8660. Attendees may bring their own blankets or lawn chairs.
Proceeds from the Hootenanny will go to Camphill Kimberton, a dynamic farming and handcrafting community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. This non-profit organization has provided meaningful work and a supportive environment since it was founded in 1972. Located on 432 acres of farm, gardens and woodlands in Chester County, Camphill Kimberton is also a local center for culture and a model for sound ecological living.
