The Friends of the Farm at Hilltop are happy to host to the Paddle Faster Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, August 19th. The day-long event will be held on the lawn north of the Big White Barn. Bring your own chairs or a blanket, and don't forget the sun screen! You are also welcome to bring a picnic. 
The lineup is incredible!

Each of the bands will play a couple of sets throughout the day.

In addition  to playing on the main stage, some of the performers will be jamming in the "Manure Shed" on the east side of the barn, so feel free to bring your own instruments. 
To keep the kids entertained a play area, including a couple of bounce houses, will be set up in farmyard, and there is always our huge sand pile to play in!

There should be a food truck or two setting up in the farmyard as well.
Last but not least, a vendor area will be set up next to the music. Click on this link to contact Paddle Faster Productions and sign up for a 10x10 or a 10x20 space.
