Farm Aid 2017
Farm Aid’s annual concert is an all-day music and food festival, featuring a unique lineup of artists and genres and family farm-identified, local and organic foods with its own HOMEGROWN Concessions®. At Farm Aid’s 2017 concert, attendees can visit the HOMEGROWN Village to meet farmers, engage in hands-on food and farm activities, and learn about the ways family farmers are enriching our soil, protecting our water and growing our economy, in addition to bringing us good food for good health.

“Folks are educating themselves about where and how food is grown – they’re hungry for the truth. Family farmers bring us good food, protect our soil and water, and strengthen our country. The Farm Aid concert is a day for us to honor that truth and keep working for family farmers.” — Willie Nelson

Farm Aid’s 2017 concert will feature Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions®, the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed 230,000 concertgoers since its introduction in 2007 at the HOMEGROWN Festival at Randall’s Island in New York City. It has served as a model for entertainment events, including the Super Bowl and a variety of music festivals and venues that have embraced the Good Food Movement in concessions. The menu will include pork chops, brats, corn dogs, burgers, veggie burgers, chicken, hotdogs, and a wide variety of vegetarian, ethnic and fresh, local foods.
The HOMEGROWN Village
The HOMEGROWN Village, with dozens of exhibitors is where concertgoers can engage in hands-on food and farm activities, art projects, games, contests, quizzes and much more. Read about last year’s exhibits here.
“At Farm Aid…we’ll come together to stand up to the handful of corporations that control our food system. If you want a better world, it starts with you.” — John Mellencamp
Farm Aid has partnered with Hotels For Hope to assist concertgoers with their lodging needs for Farm Aid 2017. Every room night booked through this Hotels for Hope link generates a $2 contribution for Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Youthmarket.
