On Thursday, Sept. 17, Farm Aid will invite media and the public to Daley Plaza, located directly in front of the Richard J. Daley center, for a preview event of Saturday’s all-day music and food festival celebrating 30 years of family farmers. During the preview event, media attending will have the chance to interview farmers and vendors participating in the HOMEGROWN Village and sample HOMEGROWN Concessions® menu items, including vegetarian nachos, giant soft pretzels and portobello burgers. Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions® brings family farm food center stage, showcasing local, organic, sustainable, humanely-raised family farm ingredients. Media also will be able to listen to good music from Chicago band and farm enthusiasts The Giving Tree Band and capture the excitement as the production for Farm Aid 30 comes together. The Thursday preview event is also open to the public. During the preview event, Farm Aid will host a Farm Aid 30 ticket giveaway.
