Farm Heritage Days Aug. 12-13

Enjoy North East is proud to present Farm Heritage Days, a mega market and two-day celebration of agriculture from 12 to 7 p.m. each day in Gibson and Heard Parks. 

We can’t wait to welcome the Axe Women Loggers of Maine, a team of world-champion choppers, logrollers and axe throwers, who will perform three shows daily at noon, 3 and 5 p.m.

In between those shows, listen to country music by Dan Baney, classic rock by Grand Larceny and bluegrass by Generic Grass. Sunday afternoon, stop by for line dancing lessons and then stick around for Night Shift and try out those new moves. 

Check out the tractor & farm equipment show noon to 5 p.m. in Heard Park. (Open to all ages and models, no registration required.) 

Saturday there’s hands-on science fun for kids from STEM & Vine and Sunday a petting zoo with ducks, rabbits, chickens, piglets, goats and more from Pony Parties LLC.

Check out homesteading demos daily and live chainsaw sculpture artist on Sunday. 

Nearby at 25 Vine St., the North East Historical Society and North East Arts Council will host an Open House from 1-7 p.m. Saturday featuring art by Ross Peters and a photography show featuring numerous local amateur and professional pieces that showcase North East, its people, places, nature and agriculture. 

And of course, we’ll have food vendors & trucks, locally grown produce and all your favorite Open Market vendors with unique crafts, jewelry and more.

Farm Heritage Days is free to attend and wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of sponsors including: 4 NINE Place, North East Athletic Club, Pennock’s Cub Cadet & Stihl by Dan & Jean Bennett, ECGRA, Orton & Orton Attorneys at Law, Trolley Line Vineyards, North East in Bloom, BC Auto Repair, Grape Coast Property Management, NFI Empire, Rossbacher Insurance Service, Arundel Cellars & Brewing Co., Walker’s Tree and Ground Services and Lawnworks.
