The BIC’s Art and Music on the Farm festival offers fine art and treasures from local artists and artisans, as well as traditional roots music played by celebrated musicians from across Virginia, all in an inviting, family-friendly setting. Whether you prefer to sip wine, peruse the eye-catching art and delve into the history of Virginia musical styles or you and your children want to enjoy funnel cakes, a children’s art activity and plan a fun summer garden, you will find something to tickle your fancy.

Everyone will revel in the toe-tapping, hand-clapping sounds of gospel, folk, and bluegrass from this year’s line-up of highly acclaimed Virginia bands. And, don’t forget the intimate workshops with the performers, hosted by music historian Gregg Kimball. The BIC is able to bring these high-caliber musicians to the Eastern Shore thanks to grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.

In addition to the music, the Farm is filled with some of the finest art in the region: over 30 artists and artisans will have their paintings, plants, and crafts for sale. There are also food and beverages (including local wine, beer, soft drinks, and iced coffee) available for purchase. Children can participate in a free and fun art activity.

So, bring your friends and family to start off summer with a glorious celebration of Virginia’s rich heritage of art and music at one of the loveliest venues on the Eastern Shore!
