Other acts include: Normal Bean, Poobah!, Dirk Quinn, Hillbilly Carnival, Black King Coal, The Braes, The Mad Anthonys, Freeway Revival, and Beggars Clan.

On both nights the “DOME” will open after the last stage set to carry the fun through the late night hours.

The Poor Farm Fest camp store will offer “I forgot” items for sale “cheep!” Draft beer will be served in many varieties at $2 a cup.

Food vendors include: Wild Willie which serves up delicious breakfast sausage gravy homemade biscuits and a killer BarBQue with homemade slaw. Italian Ice and homemade fudge will also be available for the sweet tooth in everyone.

Tie Dye from Spiral Light Productions (as usual) so everyone can take a souvenir home.

Campers and Buses are welcome to set up two days in advance with tent construction starting at 9am Friday, Aug. 1st. The first band is set to take the stage at 5pm.

While you’re at the festival, you are encouraged to enjoy the natural amenities with your friends and family, such as the cold water trout stream, woodland hiking, tons of open space for you to set up a “personal play area” for frisbee, volleyball, and corn hole.

Camping is absolutely free with your festival admission! Kids 12 and under are also FREE! Don’t leave them at home.

Pets are not allowed because of inherent dangers from wildlife or getting lost in the surrounding wilderness. but if you have a horse, they have a place for you to tether out and camp beside.
