Hale Farm - Music in the Valley Folk Music & Wine Festival

Join us as Hale Farm & Village celebrates their 39th Annual Music in the Valley Folk Music & Wine Festival. 

Enjoy folk and bluegrass music by local musicians and Ohio-made wine and food. There will be craft and trade demonstrations at Hale Farm that will continue as the music of the festival plays in the background.

Festival Hours: 10:00am - 5:00pm (we will start this meetup at noon to give everyone a chance to sleep in and relax before the event)

Admission: $10.00 per person. Discount for groups of 15 or more (cost TBD). We will meet and enter as a group to get the discount. 

Parking: Free

Live demonstrations of these early-American crafts and trades: Blacksmithing, broom making, candle making, glass blowing, pottery, spinning & weaving. 

Bring a chair if you like. We can set them up as a group in a designated area. This area will give us a place to eat, re-group and socialize

Lucas has been very involved with Western Reserve Historical Society and Hale Farm for many years. This will be his 12th year working the Music in the Valley Festival! Lucas will be available to answer any questions and give us some historical information at some point during this event. (Please correct me if I'm wrong about anything Lucas! Lol!)

There will no limit on members attending this event!

    Fantastic day to be there, and every area/demonstration was open. It was great having a very informative tour guide with some "behind the scenes" lesser know facts about HFV. Thank you Lucas!!

      With Lucas being there 13 years, he knew more than any of the "house" guides, and was a very candid source of information. It's also the first time I've seen the candle making, glassworks, spinning, pottery and blacksmith demos (I won't count the leech demo), all in the same visit. The wine was nice too.
