The 8th Annual Old 78 Farm Fall Festival is just around the corner! It will take place this Saturday, October 7th at the Old 78 Farm at 823 Orange Road in the small “Right to Farm Community” of Warwick, MA. This family-friendly event brings the feel of a large music festival, like the Green River Festival, Solid Sound Festival, or Boston Calling, to a small town in the Massachusetts hills of the North Quabbin. Just as you’d expect, this event features craft vendors, amazing food, and award-winning local and nationally known musical acts to delight festival-goers of all ages.

Grandma Lynn’s famous pies

The Old 78 Farm Fall Festival is also proud of its commitment to the local community. Many of the craft vendors live in or around Warwick selling things such as handmade crystal-wrapped jewelry, recycled/reclaimed clothing, recycled glass candle holders, hula hoops, and other hand-crafted gifts. If you happen to arrive at the festival during the day, you and the family will see Pixie Belle the Clown, there to amuse the many children who join in the day’s festivities with face-painting and balloon animals. In the evening, the stage lights up to showcase music meant to keep you up and dancing late into the night.

From the YouTube channel of gerryjdvideo:

This is a festival that inspires loyalty, where fans come year after year: not just for the music, but to enjoy the food that is primarily grown on the property or from local farmers and made on property into a variety of culinary delights. There will be amazing food as folks have come to expect from Old 78 including squash soup, sausage sandwiches, quick breads, and hand-cut French fries. Don’t forget to buy a jar of dilly beans or relish, because the canned goods sell out fast. And who could resist Grandma Lynn’s pies, made from scratch?!

And we can’t forget to talk about the music! The owner of the property, Phil Simon, is also a music booking agent and a musician himself. This year’s line-up features return performances by Flux Capacitor (PA), Rebel Alliance (MA), and The

rice: an American band

Alchemystics (MA). Also gracing our stages will be Duppy Conquerors (MA-based Bob Marley tribute band), Lunar Carnival (MA), Patty Tuite (CT), The Diamondstones (MA), Shiprock and Anchordog (MA), and rice – An American Band (MA). In the past other bands, such as last year’s artist-in-residence, Lee Ross formerly of The Hornitz, as well as Bella’s Bartok, Outer Stylie, Adam Ezra Group, Secret Sage, The Mary Jane Jones, Start Making Sense (Talking Heads tribute), Roots of Creation, Way Up South, Rhythm Inc., Llama Lasagne, DeadBeat (Grateful Dead tribute), and After Fab (Beatles tribute) have graced the stage and the list keeps growing.

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 the day of show. Children under 12 are free. Gates open at 11 AM. The music starts at noon and plays continuously until 11 PM on two different stages. The festival organizers request that no pets come to the property, as the festival grounds are a working farm and they do not want to compromise the health and safety of the animals.

From Old 78: “We are happy to announce the return of Crocker Communication, OIC (Orange Innovation Center), and Montague Webworks as our valued sponsors for this year’s festival. We are always looking for sponsors for our festival; please email or call the farm if you are interested in a sponsorship package.

This year’s festival is supported in part by grants from the Athol, Orange, Petersham, and New Salem Cultural Councils, four local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.”
