Farm Aid 2019
Farm Aid’s annual concert is an all-day music and food festival, featuring a unique lineup of artists, a celebration of family farmers, and family farm-identified, local and organic foods through HOMEGROWN Concessions®. We’ll announce full details on the date, location and lineup of Farm Aids 2019 in the spring or early summer of 2019.
“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
The HOMEGROWN Village
The HOMEGROWN Village is like a mini festival within a festival! In the Village, festivalgoers explore hands-on activities that engage all of their senses in the Farm Aid mission. Hear farmers and artists talk together about pressing issues on the FarmYard Stage, attend demonstrations to learn agrarian skills and celebrate the culture of agriculture in the HOMEGROWN Skills tent, connect with farmers and organizations doing critical food and farm work all over the country and so much more.
Each Farm Aid festival 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 more than 260,000 festivalgoers 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. Backstage, artists and crew enjoy HOMEGROWN Catering with the same family farm standards. We use compostable service products and promote composting to festivalgoers and artists with a goal of zero waste.
“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
