Sukkot on the Farm

October 16, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$5 – $8

A community wide event! Rain or Shine! Our event schedule is below.

The weather looks like it will be amazing: clear and in the high-60’s (poo poo poo). Please remember to bring a picnic lunch and blanket, a water bottle or a mug, musical instruments, dress in layers and wear comfy shoes.

Powisset Farm is an active farm located at 39 Powisset St in Dover, MA. You will see a sign for event parking directing you into a big field.

** Last minute update: We’ll be harvesting popcorn and there will then be schach available for sale. Cash or check only.**
