Pompanuck Farm Hosts Annual Memorial Day Potluck Picnic and Arts Celebration on Sunday, May 24th.

Every Memorial Day since 1994, Pompanuck Farm has hosted an “open house” event - a tribute to this day of remembrance and to the people of our greater community. The public is invited to enjoy a day-long arts festival and tour Pompanuck’s buildings and grounds. An outdoor stage is constructed and tents and tables are set for a community wide potluck sharing and networking.

Over the years the Memorial Day Picnic at Pompanuck has become an annual festival of community building; play, meal sharing and a performance showcase for musicians and artists in varied media whose offerings often reflect the spirit of peace. Some of this year’s performers are: Natural History, The Dirty Old Strings, Road House Blues Band, Ferrilyn Sourdiffe, Tracey Forest, Scott Carrino and a special presentation by members of the Enrichment Program – “The Pompanuck Circus”.

A special request… Pompanuck is planning to have a plant sale on this day to raise funds for our programs… If you are thinning out your flower beds and would like to bring a few potted plants to donate to the sale, we would greatly appreciate it!

This event is free and open to the public. Bring a dish and family and friends. This year, Pompanuck will hold its Memorial Day gathering on SUNDAY, MAY 24 –12:00 noon until dark. Rain or shine!
