The Playwicki Farm Foundation is marking the 25th anniversary since the Lower Southampton Board of Supervisors finalized the purchase of the bucolic, historic farm.
The farm was purchased from the estate of Elizabeth Snodgrass on May 18th, 1994.
In making the announcement, Rose McMenamin, president of the Playwicki Farm Foundation, says, “We’ve put together a wonderful yearlong program filled with terrific entertainment, great food and exciting and colorful events so that everyone in our community, young and old, have the opportunity to participate in our very special silver anniversary year. I want to invite everyone to join with us in saluting this magnificent farm property, which was the last large open space in the township and has been preserved and meticulously maintained so the whole township can enjoy it 365 days a year.”
Included in the festivities will be a spring flea market on May 4th, a concert by the Hearts Club Band on May 10th, a salute to our nation’s military on Armed Forces Day, May 18th, a Tri-County Band patriotic concert on June 12th, and a unique Flag Day Food Truck Rally on June 14th.
In addition, the celebration will feature a performance by KIRKO on August 9th, a Splash For Playwicki at the Dolphin Swim Club on September 8th, a remembrance of 9/11, “A Time To Remember,” on September 11th, a Fun Day showcasing crafts and an artisan fair on September 28th, and a Trunk Or Treat Halloween event staged by the Lower Southampton Police, area volunteer fire departments and EMT services on October 28th or 29th.

Additional special events and celebratory activities will be announced throughout the year.
