LIBERTY TWP. — Festivalgoers who are looking for a day of family fun will find something for everyone at the Summer Farm Festival at Liberty Farm Market.

“We like to do a big event once or twice a year. The Summer Farm Festival will be our summer event, and we are also planning another event for the fall,” said Tina Boehm, market manager and event coordinator at Liberty Farm Market.

Liberty Farm Market will present its Summer Farm Festival on Sun., June 26 from noon to 6 p.m. Admission is $10 per car. Tickets may be purchased online in advance or the day of the event. This is a family-friendly event with plenty of fun for all, including a “Best Pie Contest.” Attendees can also shop at local vendors and find plenty of fresh produce.

“We did a similar event the first year we started as a small business co-op, and it was quite successful. We just want to reach out to the community, and let people know who we are and what we do. Please come hang out with us and have some fun,” Boehm said.

The event will feature kids activities and a magician as well as entertainment for adults, including beer and wine tastings, live music, a food truck, and more.

“We’re looking forward to meeting all of the people and we hope everyone will come out and have a good time. We are all about people. We want to do fun things and be involved in the community,” Boehm said.

There will be a variety of musical acts performing throughout the day, including JC Skeen featuring Julie Anne and Colin Skeen, P’s in a Pod as well as Mark and Emily, a father/daughter duo from Liberty Twp.
