How You Can Support MCS' 2016 Farm Festival

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

Our Farm Festival online auction (www.biddingforgood.com/mcs) will be open from October 11-25, 2016. Our auction catalog will include a wide variety of unique and fun items and experiences. If you or anyone you know (e.g. local businesses, friends with connections to unique products) might be interested in donating, please review the auction letter/form and 501c3 tax exemption form and share. MCS would also be happy to include a business logo and link to the bidding website, which shared with a network of over 450,000 people!

On Saturday, October 15, 2016 from 11:00am-4:00pm, Manhattan Country School will host its urban carnival featuring family-friendly music, rides, games, arts and crafts and farm-fresh produce. The annual community and fundraising event, organized by MCS parent volunteers, also offers a wealth of culinary treats, including savory grilled fare, homemade baked goods and produce from the MCS Farm in the Catskills.

Of special note, this year's Farm Festival will be our first in our new home on the Upper West Side. We will be holding a ribbon cutting that day to celebrate the opening of our new building. We will also be hosting the Fourth Annual Post-Farm Festival Alumni Social (for alumni ages 21+) from 3:30-4:30pm.

Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to email us at farmfestival@manhattancountryschool.org or call Nancy Hsu, MCS’ special events coordinator, at (212) 348-0952 x280.

We hope you will join us on October 15 on 85th Street between Amsterdam and Columbus avenues.
