Numerous local organizations and non-profits, will be educating and inspiring people about the many advantages of local food and a maintaining healthy and fit lifestyle. Food is central to daily life and family culture, and a means for empowerment, community connection and cultural celebration. With goals to reduce waste at the Festival, we are encouraging non-profits to have engaging exhibits that minimize paper handouts.

The Family Fun Zone is filled with exciting interactive games and activities for the whole family! From getting physical to being in touch with our animals of the land and sea, there is something for everyone! Family Fun Zone is presented by: The Trustees and KAS Consulting.

The Trustees will once again bring the experience of the farm to us on The Greenway! Grande ole Goats is an interactive favorite where children meet and milk our guest goats from Chestnut Hill Farms, Southborough MA. This year, the goats will bring a few more guests to join them!

And, for the animal in you, Painting as Art & Ritual will transform your face into a roaring lion, timid tiger or cuddly teddy bear…Lions, and tigers and bears, oh my!  Angela will make magic again with her brush bringing to your face anything from butterflies and flowers to your favorite super heroes or action figure!
