Farm Aid Music and Food Festival Returns to Connecticut
Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp have been raising awareness about the loss of family farms throughout our great country since 1985 when they organized their first Farm Aid concert.
The central goal of Farm Aid is to raise awareness about the importance of the family farm and raise funds to help farm families continue to grow the food we eat.
Over the last 35 years, Farm Aid has raised $60 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture. Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on the land. This year, Farm Aid's Annual Festival returns to Hartford at the Xfinity Theatre on Saturday, September 25. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 23.
Farm Aid board members and musicians Willie Nelson & Family, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds headline the festival. Not only will concert-goers enjoy the music of Willie and his family and friends, but they will also experience homegrown concessions featuring a menu of family farm homegrown food. Ticket prices range from $65 to $305 and are available at LiveNation.com. I guarantee the following video will touch your heart.
