Event description

Description


It's that time, people. Gird your pumpkins. Tie a napkin round your neck to catch the donut crumbs. Start warming up for cakewalk (best training regime: musical chairs). We're still deciding about the pie eating contest, which last year was a little hard to watch because the pies were filled with blueberry. But maybe!

It's the Funtacular! Because it is both FUN and SPECTACULAR.

Spend October 22 at Arcadia Farm celebrating all things farm, fall, fest, family, food, and fun on the grounds of Woodlawn Mansion in Alexandria, VA!

Pack up the family and join us for a Sunday afternoon of old fashioned fun on our sustainable vegetable farm. Participate in a cake walk, bob for apples, race in the egg and spoon relay, learn how to hull fresh rice, take home a pumpkin, hang out with our chickens (and our staff!). See compost being made, enjoy hot apple cider, and meet our farmers!

Most games are free. Food and beverages will be available for sale, and you are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon on the farm!

And we've got live music! The Harley String Band will be playing throughout the day (including during the cake walk!). This homegrown band, in addition to being blood relations to one of our staff members, writes their own songs -- many of which focus on the environment. Kid-friendly too! Check them out here: http://www.harleystringband.com



We'll also have a pumpkin "patch." Pre-order a small pumpkin for $5, and a larger pumpkin suitable for carving for $10. A limited number of pumpkins will be available for sale the day of the event. Please pre-order to guarantee we'll have your pumpkin needs covered!

Admission is free, but we ask that you RSVP so we can plan properly. Those donuts don't just make themselves, you know.
