The 6th quasi-annual Lo-Fi Arts Festival, Farm Time 2012, brings together over seventy-five exhibiting artists and hundreds of guests for a 24-hour journey into performance, installation, music, food, community, and the mutability of time. From life-size bird nests to larger-than-life fairy tale sculptures, and from aerial dance to underground rituals, expect the breathtaking and the bizarre.
Guests are invited to spend the day exploring 360 acres of converted farmland in a serene river valley located outside Arlington, Washington. Overnight camping is encouraged. Bring everything needed to float the river, have a cookout (grills and coals provided), and sleep comfortably under the stars. Light refreshments for sale, including Viva Farms veggies and snacks and pies by Kate Lebo. Gates open at 10 AM on Saturday. Tickets available online and at the gate. Advance purchase recommended.
