The 2021 Farm City Day event, started in 1955, is scheduled for Saturday, October 2, is located at Jackson Park, Hendersonville, NC, and begins at 10:00 a.m. continuing until 4:00 p.m.

Approximately 80 acres of Jackson Park will be used for urban, rural and educational displays, antiques and modern farm equipment, and crafters from many generations. Farm City Day focuses on ‘agricultural awareness’, teaching kids where their food comes from and who produces it. The event celebrates Henderson county’s rural traditions and introduces the urban population to some common farming activities from previous generations.

A special youth area will feature many hands-on activities including a farm animal petting zoo, old-timey demonstrations and a fishing pond. Enjoy many children’s games and activities. Planned entertainment includes three stages of bands performing throughout the day. Food trucks are available.

There is no admission charged to the event. Some activities, food and vendors will cost money so bring some cash with you.
