Festival Description

The music and food festival took place for the first time in 1985 and has since organized festivals to support and promote family farms. The mission is to bring awareness to the flight of family farms against the forces of mega-agri farming. Farm Aid offers funds to struggling farmers, educates festival-goers and unites the farmers, audiences, and concerned citizens in the empowerment and support of fair farming practices and policies. A stellar group of artists give their support by performing at the popular festival.
