With the easing of restrictions for public gatherings and interactions related to the pandemic health emergency, the Playwicki Farm Foundation recently announced a schedule of upcoming community and special events to be held at the 110-acre historic farm located at 2350 Bridgetown Pike in Feasterville.
“Once again, the foundation will be hosting a new and exciting four-part Second Friday series which gets underway on June 11th, with a terrific program planned and produced by Mommy’s Lil’ Black Book, of Levittown,” states Rose McMenamin, president of the Playwicki Farm Foundation. The company has been engaged to handle all of the Second Friday programs which are scheduled from 5:00 to 8:30pm.
According to Jen Flannery, of Mommy’s Lil’ Black Book, all of the Second Friday programs are open to the public and will feature food trucks and food vendors, crafters, a beer and wine garden for adults, a moon bounce and knuckle ball for children, balloon art and face painting and disc jockey entertainment. “We are trying to offer something for every member of the family, young or old,” Jen comments. Additional Second Fridays will be held on July 9th, August 13th and September 11th. “I’d like take this opportunity to encourage everyone to come out to this beautiful farm setting and join the food, fun, entertainment and excitement,” she comments. Parking is free at the farm.
In addition, the Farm Foundation will be presenting a host of entertaining and fun-filled special events for the public to participate in and enjoy. The Love Grows Farmers Market offering fresh fruits and vegetables, many locally grown, will be open every Sunday, May through December from 10:00am to 1:00pm. Also, there will be a “Time To Remember Program,” a salute to 9/11 beginning that day at 8:30am, the annual Fun Day for children on September 23rd, which includes “Trunk or Treat,” will be held from 11:00am to 2:00pm, and an Octoberfest on October 9th will unfold from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
The Playwicki Farm is celebrating its 27th anniversary year since the Lower Southampton Township Board of Supervisors purchased it for the public to enjoy. The Playwicki Farm Foundation was created in September of 1996 as an independent tax-exempt corporation to raise money for charitable, educational and scientific purposes. The funds are used for the repair, maintenance, replacement and preservation of the Playwicki Farm and the development of educational programs.
