  • What is Farm Festival?

    The Manhattan Country School Farm Festival is an annual street festival and community fundraising event that takes place on the third Saturday of October. It is organized and staffed by MCS parents and generously supported by neighbors, local businesses and friends of the school. The event ties West 85th Street to the MCS campus in Roxbury, N.Y., bringing a bit of the MCS farm and the Catskills to the city.
