“The Farm Aid benefit concert takes place each year thanks to the generosity of artists who donate their talent to raise awareness about the crucial need we have for family farmers on the land,” Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid, said. “We are thrilled to have an eclectic lineup this year that includes returning artists, as well as artists new to the Farm Aid stage. Together, Farm Aid concertgoers and artists are changing our food system!”
Farm Aid’s all day music and food festival will spotlight farm food and include hands-on activities that will give concertgoers a true understanding on why family farm agriculture is so important. Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions brings family farm food center- stage, showcasing local, organic, sustainable, humanely-raised family farm ingredients.
Additionally, in Farm Aid’s Homegrown Village, concertgoers will have the chance to meet farmers, take part in hands-on food and farm activities and learn about how family farmers are enriching soil, protecting water and growing the economy in addition to bringing food to tables across America.
