Farm Festival is Manhattan Country School's annual community-building and fundraiser. It is a public event that engages the MCS community, our surrounding Upper West Side neighborhood and the city-at-large that attracts around 1,000 attendees each year. Generous sponsors help to make it a success. The event features:
- family-friendly rides, games, arts and crafts and live music
- a wealth of culinary treats, including savory grilled fare, hearty side dishes and homemade baked goods
- farm-fresh produce, handmade crafts, new and gently used books and a children's clothing boutique
- live musical entertainment
- a raffle drawing (prizes: $2,000 cash, Apple iPad Mini, $200 Le Pain Quotidien gift card and Farm Festival swag). Winner need not be present at the drawing to win.
- an online auction featuring one-of-a-kind items and experiences (bidding available from October 15-29)
Farm Festival revenue supports Manhattan Country School's unique sliding-scale tuition program that enables all MCS families to educate their children as equal members of an economically, racially and culturally diverse community.
