You can expect some great down-home fun this year at the festival. Here are some attractions at this year's festival that you don't want to miss...
THE GREAT TALENT SEARCH:
Students from across the parish will compete on stage for the coveted title of “Most Talented Student.” From stand up comedy to singing solo, you'll find a variety of student talent mixed in with some of this area's professional musical talent.
The Children’s Hands On Museum features nearly a dozen stations of various art processes. The Children's Art, Poetry, Yard & Thread contest winners features the largest exhibition of children's art in the area.
CHILDREN & ADULT ART:
Visit the Adult Art & Craft Vendors scattered around the picturesque four acres for everything from handcrafted purses to original jewelry as well as an impressive collection of fine art. Sign up for any one of the many 'Families Create Workshops' and learn how to do a variety of art related processes. At only forty-five minutes to an hour, these workshops will spark your imagination and it’s FREE!
Step back in time and enter the modest historic home of the Moess family. Built in 1933 following the devastating tornado, the quaint house is much like it was in the late thirties. Inside, you will also see original artwork created by area students in remembrance of the Thornton sisters, named by Guiness World Book as the oldest African American Siblings in the World in 2010.
PUBLIC ART INSTALLATION:
Try your hand at creating any one of several public art pieces and leave your mark at this year’s festival. Students from across the parish will participate in the creation of the Farm’s largest outdoor sculpture. Created out of found objects and trash, this year’s Funky Chicken will be recreated under the guidance of nationally known trash artist, Alice Guffey Miller.
ADMISSION IS $5 FOR ADULTS AND FREE FOR CHILDREN!
