Lo-Fi Arts Festival - Farm Time 2012
- All Ages
If you can take time can you store it? If you can bend time can you break it?
The Lo-Fi Arts Festival, Farm Time 2012, brings together over seventy-five exhibiting artists and hundreds of guests for a 24-hour journey into performance, installation, music, storytelling, and the mutability of time. From life-size bird nests to larger-than-life fairy tale sculptures, and from aerial dance to underground rituals, expect the breathtaking and the bizarre.
Ride your bike to the farm for discounted entry.
Spend the day exploring 360 acres of converted farmland in a serene river valley located outside Arlington, Washington. You never know who or what you'll find along the way – dancers, painters, poets – on the trail or in the trees. Overnight camping is encouraged. Bring everything you need to float the river, have a cookout (grills and coals provided), and sleep comfortably under the stars. Pack out what you pack in and bring biodegradable soaps only. Light refreshments for sale, including fare from Viva Farms and Pretzelwagen and pies by Kate Lebo.
Gates open at 10 AM on Saturday. Parking is limited. Carpooling recommended. Ride your bike to the farm for discounted entry.
Families welcome. Children under 12 get in free. They must be supervised at all times. Sorry, no dogs allowed.
