On what days did you have you garden party in 2014. It was one of my first dates with my fiancé and could not remember the dates.

Yes. The email will come at the end of the week. All parking for the festival is at the high school right on Route 20. There are shuttle buses down into the village and to the farm tour

I will be in a nearby town on that weekend visiting from floriday for my birthday and this event sounds really fun and full of all kinds of good things to do. Will Josh and you be visiting the festival checking things out or do you have all day commitments for the festival?? You two guys are wonderful!

Hi, Kelly. This is not happening this year, but we’ll try to organize it again in the future. SO many logistics to work through!
