Farmers Market

We will be hosting a Farmers Market both days to promote local farms and cottage businesses. There will also be a space reserved for vendors who sell goods and services based on health and wellness including Thai Yoga massage, handmade lotions and soaps, and other wellness based businesses.

Live Music

Live acoustic music will run both days throughout the grounds with a larger concert set for Saturday evening with Porters Bluff headlining.

Live Music ALL DAY throughout the Forge grounds

Bands on the Grist Mill stage start at 7pm

Live Hands-On Art Demos

Live art stations will be set up where artists will show how to do their particular craft. Last year there was a live community loom where adults and children alike had the opportunity to add to the large woven piece. There was also a pottery wheel with artisans helping teach how to throw pottery and make simple pieces. We are also going to have weaving stations along with artist demonstrations.

Health And Wellness

There will be an area for health and wellness with Thai Yoga massage, organic soaps, handmade clothes and other wonderful products and services with wellness in mind.

You can simply want to wander around the beautifully-manicured herb gardens and grounds of the Forge, grab a cone of homemade ice cream or an adult beverage from the Forge’s bar and settle in to one of the many park benches and tables to listen to local musicians as they play their original songs.

We are always looking for volunteers. If you’d like to stay for the day or for the whole weekend, you can help with tent set-ups and take-downs, food delivery, booth sitting, water runs, errand running and just helping in general.
