Crabtree Farms is hosting the first Fall Farm Fair on Saturday from 12-5 p.m. All proceeds will benefit their educational programs and services for the Chattanooga community.
Activities will include crafts for the kids (terra cotta pot painting, seed mosaics, and scarecrow stuffing), tractor rides, petting zoo, photo booth, face painting, corn hole, apple fishing, BB gun range, and live bluegrass music (bring instruments).
There will be competitions including a pie eating contest, potato sack race, greased butternut relay, water relay, egg toss, pumpkin chuckin', cross country bike race, bonfire building and tug-o-war.
Prize giveaways for visitors who donate to Crabtree's education programs will include a bike tour in Austria and a Pilates class package.
Guests can bring their own food to fry in local lard from River Ridge Farms (a veggie oil option will also be available) or purchase treats from one of the food vendors - The Missing Link, Lupi's, and Food Not Bombs.
Mulled cider from Fairmount Orchard and beer from Chattanooga Brewing Company will also be available.
Tickets may be purchased at the door. The $5 entrance fee gets you two tickets to start with. Additional tickets can be purchased for games, competitions, beer, food, and more. There is free admission for members and for folks who bike to the farm. Bike valet parking will be available.
