Local culinary favorite Chimm Thai will be on site cooking up a ticketed Thai and South-East Asian lunch for hungry celebrants (please bring a little extra cash or card for this). We will also have drinks for adults and children available from local craft beverage partners.

Festive midsummer attire is not just encouraged, it will be rewarded! Bring chairs and blankets for picnicking. We cannot wait to see all!

Special thanks to WTJU for sponsoring this event benefiting BRIMS!

RAIN PLAN: In the event of inclement weather (beyond a light drizzle), our event will take place at the Haven in Charlottesville instead of the farm. Organizers will send out a communication to all ticketed guests 24 hrs prior if this is necessary.
