We’re a week away from our 9th annual Fall Festival and the Foxhollow Farm team could not be more excited. We prize this time of year as an opportunity to welcome folks from Oldham County, Louisville, and surrounding counties to connect with a local working farm and enjoy some of the best of fall.
This autumn celebration benefitting Maryhurst has become a community tradition, and this year we’re expanding to make the event bigger and better than ever.
As always, the festival will offer our fall favorites: hayrides, pumpkin picking, a corn maze, old fashioned carnival games, and crafts. Face painting and playing on the Hay Castle have always been a huge hit with the youngest crowd!
Nearly 10,000 people of all ages attended the 2015 event—double the attendance of the previous year. To support this growing event, we’ve streamlined parking, added a children’s stage with interactive entertainment, and doubled the food, fun, play space, and free and low cost activities for families to explore.
Fresh additions to the festival this year include our new Brews and BBQ section, featuring a selection of local barbeque vendors and craft beer on draft from local breweries Goodwood Brewing Co. and West Sixth Brewery.
“It’s incredible to think back to nine years ago when we had just 100 people around a bonfire to now having 10,000 people from the community visiting the Fall Festival in support of Maryhurst,” shares Maggie Keith, co-owner and 4th generation farmer at Foxhollow Farm.
Proceeds from the Fall Festival benefit Maryhurst and their therapeutic and educational services for abused and neglected girls. With the community’s generous support, Foxhollow Farm has donated more than $85,000 in Fall Festival proceeds to Maryhurst in the last seven years. This year, we’ve set an ambitious goal to donate an additional $30,000 to Maryhurst.
Please join us in celebrating the beginning of Fall and supporting the important work of Maryhurst!
The 9th Annual Fall Festival is Saturday, October 8th 10am-6pm at Foxhollow Farm. Admission is free with a $10 per car parking fee. For more details, please visit our Fall Festival page.
