Music and agriculture will soon unite.
A 12-hour music festival featuring local bands is set to benefit the Central Rivers Farmshed. The Farmshed Benefit Bash will run from noon to midnight on Saturday, Sept. 23, at Renee’s Red Rooster.
The benefit has no set admission fee but a $10 donation is suggested with all proceeds going toward the Farmshed. Donations and memberships to Farmshed support their production greenhouse, community kitchen, gathering space, learning center and community programs including farm tours, food preservation workshops and community potlucks.
According to their a website, the Farmshed is “a network of people, businesses, organizations, and productive lands that create a local food economy.”
Bands performing at the benefit include local acts Mr. Martin and the Sensitive Guys, Elk Startled by Thunder, Bag-Dad and Among Them In Trenches. Multiple regional acts from Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago are also on the lineup.
Food will be available for purchase from the Waupaca-based Wrap N’ Roll Etc. mobile food bus.
