Farmfest, 1865 Roby Road, Johannesburg, MI 49715

We are keeping it small and safe. All the protocols from last year’s plan will be in place. Temps and contact info will be requested at the gate. Expect respectfulness and kindness. We hope you will give the same to all you see. We will have some fun with it too…distancing games, fun no hugging stickers etc. There will be sanitation stations set up along your paths. Please use them. You may distance at your own comfort level. The only thing that will cause us to cancel again would be mandates from our government officials.

Weekend admission to Farmfest 2021 is $130 per person, including camping. Ages 12 and under are free. Sunday only tickets are $41.

Peter Madcat Ruth has a brand new band, the C.A.R.M.a. Quartet, which plays eclectic traditional and improvisational music. Blues, American roots, folk, jazz, and world music are all part of the mix.
