Bushy Hill Farm Aid All Day Outdoor Benefit Concert May 12

Ivoryton, CT Grab the kids and put on your dancing shoes as Bushy Hill is hosting its first ever Farm Aid, a benefit concert for the farm at Bushy Hill! On May 12 (rain date May 13) from 11am-5pm on the Activity Center field we will have performances from 6 local bands and musicians. There will also be a Primitive Studies Expo where kids and families can learn about flint napping, hyde tanning, primitive fire making, basket weaving and much more! There will be some great food vendors, including a donut truck, and many local artists selling their crafts. Admission is $5 per person, children under 12 are free! All proceeds will go towards operating the farm, which is in need of some repairs and new equipment.

The local bands and musicians performing at Farm Aid will be: The Side Doors, Margie Warner, The Meadows Brothers, Autopilot, Will Leet, The Dizzy River Band, and Eric & Sandra Lichter.

The farm plays an integral and ever growing part in the Bushy Hill Nature Center programs. At Bushy Hill we are committed to helping people of all ages, especially children, develop a strong connection to and reverence for our natural world. Our programs serve over 2000 children a year from pre-school through high school. We believe that by connecting with nature we come to better understand ourselves, each other, and the world around us.

Bushy Hill at Incarnation Center is located at 253 Bushy Hill Road, Ivoryton, CT. Parking for the event will be on one side of Bushy Hill Road, you can then walk to the main entrance, past the pond, and you will see the Activity Center field on your left.
