About the Farm Fresh Festival for Kids
The Farm Fresh Festival for Kids is a free community event to connect kids and families to a wholesome and magical farm experience in NYC! The theme of the Farm Fresh Festival for Kids is: EAT, LEARN, PLAY AT THE FARM!
On Saturday, September 17th, 2016, The Seaport District in Lower Manhattan will transform into an interactive and experiential farm environment for kids and families. The Seaport District will come alive with the sights, tastes, play, animals, farmers, growers, and harvest of a farm. Farm Discovery Zones share fun and fresh adventures of a day at the farm.
The Festival’s mission is to make healthy-living fun and accessible for all kids and families. A goal of the Farm Fresh Festival for Kids is to teach children through play and activities, where food comes from, how food grows, and lessons of sustainability. Kids and families will taste and enjoy farm fresh foods. And they will exercise, create and play in a fun, festive and safe environment.
A goal of the Festival is to raise awareness and funds for non-profit organizations working in NYC to fight childhood obesity, hunger and poor nutrition. The Festival community partner organizations include the City Growers, Edible Schoolyard NYC, The Fresh Air Fund, Green Bronx Machine, Harlem Grown, and Grow to Learn NYC.
