about the eventSod Farm Festival is Presented by Project Schoolhouse
The Sod Farm Festival as well as Project Schoolhouse, the charity that it supports, are certainly both passion projects that have deep roots in the Sheridan community. Last year, the festival raised over $20,000 to support Project Schoolhouse’s school and water system building projects in remote Nicaraguan communities.
This music festival features local musicians from the Sheridan area and would be impossible without the strong support of that same community. We are thankful for the performers, volunteers, and community partners who make this event possible.
We are also thankful to everyone who purchases a ticket and attends the event. In 2016 we had over 600 people in attendance and a good time was certainly had by all.
This festival features a vaudeville format with 20 minute performance sets running for over 7 hours featuring 18 different performances and dozens of performers. With one minute to exit the stage and one minute to get onstage and start playing, each performance follows closely on the heels of the last, giving the audience a non-stop musical experience that is unique among music festivals.
This year, to our delight, one of those 20 minute sets will feature Cheryl Barker and Boomer, her champion border collie, as they demonstrate the sheep penning skills that won them the champion novice title in the 2016/17 winter circuit.
Every year, in what has become a tradition, Bob Wyatt pipes in the dusk in honor those who are no longer with us.
I hope you will purchase a ticket and join us this year, in what will be our 5th almost annual Sod Farm Festival. It is very much a community event and I welcome all to that community. If you know me, please come say hello and if you don’t, please introduce yourself when you get there.
I look forward to seeing you on August 19th.
