We're Back! with a New Open-Air Tap Room
Music, Merriment, Munchies, Minutemen!
Date: Saturday, October 1st
Time: 4:00* - 8:00 pm
NEW Location: . Faulkner Homestead, 5 High St. Acton, MA
Parking: Commuter lots on Maple St.
Fun, frivolity, food, and tomfoolery begin at 4:00 pm after the Iron Work Farm's very brief annual meeting (3:45PM) annual meeting.
Join us as the Acton Minutemen end the meeting with a booming salute to start the fun. Faulkner homestead grounds allow for several capacious tents just in case we have inclement weather, plus room for firepits and fun with lawn games.
Our bill of fare will include libations by True West Brewery & Pony Shack Cider plus scrumptious meals available from True West catering, if you’re hungry. You're welcome to pack a picnic and sit out at the tables, or on your own blanket. Our musical entertainment is provided by Ward Hayden & The Outliers. Their last gig before leaving on a European tour!
Help us preserve the 1707 Faulkner Homestead, 1732 Jones Tavern and the history that made Acton great, and share the event with friends and family!
