When planned, Saturday’s event at the Mean Greens Farm northeast of Seymour was a barbecue competition.
Now it’s a music festival.
Officially called “an outdoor concert on the farm,” for eight full hours this Saturday at the venue located 1-1/2 miles northeast of Seymour on Highway AB, live bands will perform as a variety of vendors serve up a wide range of foods, some of it served from food trucks.
Gates for Saturday’s competition open at 3:30 p.m.
A beer garden also opens at that time.
Music starts at 4 p.m. and continues until midnight with four different bands playing.
Leading the way is Brandyn Wyles from 4 to 6 p.m., followed by Buddy Edwards and “The Killing Time Band” from 6 to 8 p.m.
“White Oak Revival” plays from 8 to 10 p.m.
“Woody & The Outlaws” close the eight hours of music by playing from 10 p.m. to midnight.
Admission is $10.
Children age 3 and under get in free.
Food trucks arrive on site at 5 p.m.
Therrin Dickinson, who with her husband, Matt, owns and operates Mean Greens Farm, said there also will be a wide variety of concessions and, of course, on sale throughout the celebration will be fresh produce from their farm.
“We’re very optimistic that this entire day will be a lot of fun for anyone and everyone who attends,” Dickinson said.
“It’s an event for the entire family. We’ll have something for everyone.”
