With jugglers, acrobats, face painting, and a barn full of baby animals,
we’re ready to celebrate the beginning of summer with opening weekend!

Saturday | May 25
New England Center for Circus Arts
, an internationally recognized professional training program, will transform Farmhouse Square! Performers will swing, leap and fly while presenting acrobatics, juggling and aerials. Performances will take place at 12 pm, 12:45 pm, 1:30 pm, and 2:15 pm.

Sunday | May 26
Goat Yoga will take place on the lawn at 9am. Bring your practice to a whole new level with some curious and friendly assistants. Register here!

Cheesemaking with Rebop Farm starts at 10am in the Farmhouse kitchen. In this hands-on workshop, you’ll not only learn the science behind cheese but you’ll get to make butter, ricotta, & mozzarella and crème fraîche or yogurt if time permits. Register now, as space is limited.

New England Youth Theater will present singers, jugglers, and clowns from 11am to 1pm. These energetic theater students will entertain and delight visitors of all ages. Face painting will also be available from 11am to 1pm.

All of the activities on Farmhouse Square are free and open to all thanks to River Valley Credit Union, who is sponsoring the weekend’s festivities.
