"Festival at the Farm just keeps getting better! The addition of Trampled by Turtles, Martin Sexton, Joseph and The Ghost of Paul Revere adds depth to what was already a stellar line-up," said James Macdonald, founder of Six Chair Productions. "We are so pleased to partner with Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs to bring this family-friendly festival to Greater Boston and we can't wait for the weekend to begin.
Festival at the Farm is a one-of-a-kind event bringing all ages together for live music, local food and drink, backyard games and an on-site farmers market featuring local farmers, non-profits and inspired craft vendors.
The festival has been designed with families in mind, teaming up with Kids Really Rock to present a very special kids concert each day. The Kids Really Rock All-Star Jam will feature Karen K. and the Jitterbugs alongside a who's who of New England Kids musical artists. Artists for the Kids Really Rock All-Star Jam will be announced next month.
The Free Range Kids Zone, inspired by Pete and Gerry's free range hens who have ample room to roam on the farm, will feature a host of interactive games and activities including face-painting, storytelling, and magic shows, as well as hen petting with Pete and Gerry's Organic hens and Meet-A-Farmer, providing families the opportunity to interact with a Pete and Gerry's Organic farmer.
Commonwealth Cambridge owner and chef Nookie Postal will return to Festival at the Farm in 2018 to create a farm-to-table dining experience in the festival's VIP area. VIP ticket holders will also enjoy preferred concert viewing and a private bar and lounge along with other amenities.
In addition to enjoying great music and activities onsite, attendees will help provide 100,000 meals to those in need. A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank and Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs will donate one dozen eggs for every ticket sold. Fans will be able to take part in the fundraising by making online donations at ticketing checkout as well as through select activities at the festival.

The property is located at the gateway of the Blue Hills Reservation, public parkland that has been set aside for recreational use. Free parking is available on the Prowse Farm grounds.
