Hoedown at the Urban Grange - Ticket site coming soon!

Saturday, September 26th 5-9pm

 

For decades, rural grange halls have been hubs for community gatherings. This fall, we’re hosting our first Hoedown in the Urban Grange, an event that will bring together folks from near and far, the young, the old and the in-between to celebrate a shared love of good food, farming and community.

 

Come for the square dancing, and stay for the kind of pit roasted pig, corn on the cob, pickles and coleslaw that will make you nostalgic for country living, even if you grew up in the city or at the end of a cul-de-sac. We'll also have a hand-cranked ice cream station, cider pressing, a farm photo corral, and a raffle and auction.
