(And if you haven’t got it on your smartphone yet, you’re missing out on creating your own schedule of performances and exhibits, a map of all the details at the venue, the menus for HOMEGROWN Concessions®, and late-breaking news and contests for concertgoers.)

Before you head out to Walnut Creek Amphitheatre, be sure to take a look at the venue policies on our information page. And remember to help our food drive with The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina by bringing non-perishable food and non-food items that are in boxes, cans or plastic bottles (no glass). Suggested donation items include canned tuna and protein, canned fruits and vegetables, cereal, whole grain pasta and rice, and peanut butter. Non-food items, such as personal hygiene products and paper products, are also needed. (More details on the food drive and everything else you could want to know is on our About the Concert page.)
Doors open at noon and the show will run until 11pm. You’ll want to come for the whole day — you won’t want to miss any of the generous artists who have donated all the expenses for their travel and performances, and to see the unique on-stage collaborations that happen so often between artists at Farm Aid.
With rain in the forecast, come prepared with raincoats and ponchos. Small, retractable umbrellas are allowed on the lawn. Like the farmers, we’ll be out no matter the weather!
You’ll also want to set aside time to explore the HOMEGROWN Village, which is open from noon until 5:30pm, to experience hands-on, interactive exhibits from a wide variety of food and farming groups to learn more about farmers and where your food comes from. Stop by the HOMEGROWN Skills Tent to learn skills like making your own pepper jelly or flower crowns and much more.
And finally, if you’re not joining us in Raleigh this year, you can still help celebrate at home. Watch live in HD on AXS TV starting at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific or on our webcast, Farm Aid 2014 Presented by Amy’s Kitchen starting at 5pm on FarmAid.org.
