Music and Wine: A Perfect Pairing at Hale Farm & Village

BATH, Ohio – Sip a glass of wine while listening to local folk musicians at Hale Farm & Village’s Music in the Valley Folk Music & Wine Festival, July 12-13, 2014, from 10 am to 5 pm. This is the festival’s 40th year and while the music part of the event will be familiar, the addition of a wine garden is something new.

“We’re excited to introduce the element of wine to this already popular music event at Hale Farm,” says Jason Klein, site manager at Hale Farm. “This is a great opportunity for visitors to experience the high-quality wine produced locally here in Ohio.” Participating wineries include the following:

Hale Farm partners with Folknet each year to present the festival. Folknet is an organization dedicated to the development, expansion, and celebration of folk music and traditional arts. Its musicians will perform on rustic stages made of straw bales, benches and barn floors. While guests tour the beautiful property and experience all that Hale Farm has to offer, the sounds of dulcimers, banjos and fiddles will fill the air.

All regular museum craft and trade demonstrations will be open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring a chair, sample the wines, and make a day of listening to music throughout the scenic grounds.

Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children 3-12, and free for WRHS members and children under age 2. Tickets can be purchased online at www.halefarm.org. For more information, call 330-666-3711.
