Head to Pumpkin Vine Family Farm, in Somerville, on Saturday, August 10, for an unforgettable evening of art and community under the open sky. The hillside fields are beautiful in the golden glow of twilight; filled with the music of Toki Oshima & John Pranio on fiddle and guitar. They are magical. Find a partner, meet your neighbor – soon you’ll be part of a swirling, laughing community in a contra dance guided by Chrissy Fowler, the amazing caller who makes the dances easy and fun, no matter your experience.

Prefer a slower pace? You can browse the craft tents from our amazing local artisans, enjoy a picnic dinner prepared by the talented folks at Washington General, stroll the farm fields, or just sit and watch the setting sun; our lights twinkle on at dusk. Children are welcome to play in the farm fields and explore the barn under parental supervision. Come alone or with friends – you’ll be sure to leave with more than you started!

Parking opens at 5 p.m. in our lower field. Wagon rides up to the farm will run from 5 – 6:15 p.m.; if you arrive after that you can enjoy the five minute walk up the dirt road past our farm fields. Craft & food tents are open from 5 – 8 p.m.; music & dance run from 6-9 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
