Cosplay goes country at FarmFest, the Urban Farm at Stapleton’s fifth annual benefit, featuring an historical reenactment about the mounted soldiers of the 10th Cavalry Drill Team.
At FarmFest, you’ll get more than a mere slice of country life. In no particular order, there will be hayrides, pony rides, a horse belly bounce house, twenty country-style carnival games (cow feeding, horseshoe toss, etc.), facepainting and the chance to feed goats, then groom a miniature horse. Crafty members of the crowd might paint a pumpkin plucked from the monstrous patch or make a scarecrow, all while listening to jams flow from Rudy and the Buffalo Riders, Briar Branch and Porch Jam. Natural Genius and Urban Mud will teach composting, backyard chicken keeping, seed saving, vermicomposting and sustainable building techniques at free workshops held throughout the day.
