Join us for a concert on the farm!

We are excited to announce The Singing Farm Summer Concert Series at the Howard Street Farm! Grab a few friends, set up your blanket and chairs, bring all your best picnic gear, and enjoy a freshly prepared dinner by one of our restaurant-partners, while listening to live music all in the open air. Our next concert is on October 4 with music by Jon Langford and food by Pearl’s Southern Kitchen!

Each ticket provides admission for up to 4 people and guarantees your group a designated, socially-distanced picnic spot (we do not encourage separate groups to intermingle in order to stay within state guidelines on COVID-19).

Each ticket will also include a 4-course dinner freshly prepared by Pearl’s Southern Comfort that features produce grown on the farm steps from your picnic site. The dinner is prepackaged and provides enough food to satiate four people and two people generously. We ask that guests bring their own plates, glasses, corkscrews, and utensils to minimize waste and cross-contamination. There will be optional add-on tickets for appropriately-paired wine by Perman Wine Selections and Sketchbook beer. 

After dinner, sit back and enjoy the music as Jon Langford and guitarist John Szymanski take the stage! We are so excited to feature them as part of The Singing Farm Concert Series. Jon Langford is a founding member of the Mekons, Three Johns, and Waco Brothers. He is one of the leaders in incorporating folk and country music into punk rock.
