  • What is Farm Festival?

    The MCS 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.

    Although we could not convene our annual community-building and fundraising event on West 85th Street this year, we still provided a fun-filled day featuring a raffle, auction, and “live” entertainment for all ages! Revenue from Farm Festival is critical to supporting annual operating expenses not met by income from tuition. 

     
  • How Can I Support?

    There are many ways you can support Farm Festival:
Due to restrictions on gathering around COVID - 19, MCS temporarily renamed our marquee fundraiser to Big Night In! On April 24 our community came together to honor the legacy of MCS educators and their impact on progressive education. 

Big Night In! personified the spirit of our community and was a meaningful way to gather despite not being able to do so in person. To hear from so many of our students, faculty, alumni, families, and friends about what makes MCS’ educators so special was heartening and important. I hope you are able to watch the recording soon and that it makes you feel connected to one another through this common experience we all share.
