Event description

Description

It's that time, people. Get out your favorite flannel shirt, lace up your sack racing sneakers, and start warming up for cakewalk (best training regime: musical chairs). It's the Arcadia Fall Funtacular! We had to make up our own word because not one existing word captured both how FUN and SPECTACULAR* it is!

Spend Oct. 20 (from 1-4 PM) at Arcadia's Hilltop Farm celebrating all things farm, fall, food, family, 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, take a hay ride over to Dogue, our production farm, compete in various relay races, learn about compost and bees, help us plant garlic for the winter, make some farm art, buy some veggies from our veterans-turned-farmers, and hang out with our chickens (and our staff!). Enjoy homemade donuts and potato chips, sip on some apple cider all while enjoying the lovely backdrop of Arcadia. Get your Funtacular passport stamped at all the stations and get a prize! (To best enjoy the Funtacular, come at the beginning and stay till the end as some of the activities are staggered!)

Entrance is free. Most games are free! Food and beverages will be available for sale, and you are welcome to bring your own picnic and enjoy an afternoon on the farm! Parents, this may well be your dream Sunday. Outdoors, educational, low to no cost, depending how you roll! Please register in advance so we have the right amount of supplies on hand for the crowd!

*Spectacularly low tech! No bouncy houses. No fireworks. Just good, clean, old-fashioned fun!
