1st Annual South Jersey Arts & Farms Festival in Medford, NJ Saturday, October 11. Festival organizer, Ryan Olson, is inheriting his families farm, Indian Acres Tree Farm, and with that, he is looking to transition from a Pumpkin & Christmas Tree Farm, to a full fledged sustainable, organic produce farm, as well as a community center for Concerts, Entertainment, Education, and a beautiful, outdoor nature escape for those who live in the South Jersey area.
The focus of the festival is to bring together the community and raise awareness, while exposing the areas most talented artists/bands, most who grew up in South Jersey and now represent the Philly music scene, as well as bringing great Philly friends to play & get them exposure in the area. The festival has launched a Kickstarter campaign & website for the event, and they’ve received an overwhelming amount of support so far.

26 bands, 3 stages, dozens of local crafters, farmers, and buisnesses, all in one day from 11am-11pm, and it’s FREE!!.
Nik Greeley – is the festival Music Director. He’s the frontman of the Philly band Black Stars. This festival will be the final Black Stars show before they announce their new name & lineup. They will be reuniting the original lineup & this will be their farewell show. They believe agriculture is the backbone to our society that needs an organic revival, so this event hopes to act as the springboard for Indian Acres Farm as it begins its transition into becoming a full-fledged Organic Produce farm. “Foster the growth of not only our seeds, but our people” That’s what we stand for.
