Full Details:

Funk Down on the Farm is NC’s first festival dedicated to wild, spontaneous, natural and funky ground to glass food and beverage. Its all about native yeasts and agriculture.  This is our way of saying thank you!  We appreciate all the love from our community, for supporting our journey in natural cider, to the farmers, who allow us to ferment their fruits, and to nature, for showing us the way!  So come on out and celebrate with us!  The festival will also highlight collaborative efforts between local NC farms and food and beverage producers.

Funk Down is all about doing it the old-school way.  Minimal intervention. Wild yeasts. Spontaneous  fermentation. Mixed Cultures.

The festival will feature a variety of styles from sours to farmhouse.  Taking place at Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm, the home of Botanist & Barrel Cidery, will be in full bloom with a few million blueberry flowers.

This festival is raising money for the Hillsborough/Orange County Chamber of Commerce, which helps our local farmers and small businesses have continued success!

Big thank you to our sponsors who are helping make this happen.

The Nitty Gritty:

Is there an age limit?

All attendees must be at least 21 years old with a valid ID.

Will you run out of anything?

Some producers could kick their kegs before the event ends, but we will do our best to avoid this.

Where and when is it?

Funk Down on the Farm is April 13th @ Botanist & Barrel on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm.  It will be outside and is rain or shine.  There will be lots of tents and covered areas if it does rain.

The event takes place from 12-4 for those with VIP tickets and from 1-4 for those with GA tickets.

I’m a vegetarian, will there be food options for me?

Yes!

Whats up with parking?

There is limited parking on the farm.  VIP includes onsite parking in close proximity. If needed, overflow parking will be next door with a complimentary shuttle.

A few do’s and don’ts and items that you can or can’t bring-

Please no pets or children.  Foldout/camping chairs are fine to bring. Bags are permissible but are subject to security inspection upon entry into the festival. No weapons of any kind are permitted.

Please do not bring outside food or open any cans/bottles during the festival.  They will be confiscated, for legal reasons.

This is a food and beverage fest and we want everyone to enjoy themselves, but anyone that’s clearly intoxicated or acting inappropriately will be asked to leave.

We want you to be safe so we strongly encourage attendees to carpool with a designated driver or to use services like Uber, Lyft, or local taxis.

Tickets are non-refundable and subject to applicable taxes and fees, as well as changes. All sales are final!  This is an outdoor event and it is Rain or Shine!
