Family-friendly farm festival taking place in Frederick

April 17, 2013 by  

Frederick residents are invited to catch a glimpse into farm life at an event honoring their city’s rural past.

In less than two weeks’ time, Rose Hill Manor Park will be hosting its Spring Family Festival in conjunction with the Frederick County Farm Museum Association. The services of a print company are likely being used to promote the festivities and put informational materials together for the big day.

Attendees of all ages will have a chance to go on hay rides and visit livestock in the barn. They will also be able to watch demonstrators do the spring planting and discover how milk makes the journey from the farm to the grocery store.

The event will offer a number of activities designed specifically for children. Kids will have the opportunity to participate in tractor pulls, play games, and make their own crafts.

A number of vendors will be at the park to sell their handiwork, which will include quilts and decorative pieces. Home-style food will also be available for purchase, and the event will feature live music.

The Family Festival will take place at 1611 North Market Street on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28. It will run between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm on Saturday and between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm on Sunday. There will be no charge for admission, although attendees will need to pay for meals and some of the activities. They will also be encouraged to donate $1 for parking. Those who would like more information may call (301) 600-1648.
