Lyman Orchards 

St Jude LogoCome out to the farm for a good old fashioned music festival, featuring some of the best local bands to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This year, we're also bringing in some of the best food trucks in the area, as well as some of Connecticut's best craft breweries. FREE ADMISSION.

Silent Auction with continue throughout the day. It's a terrific opportunity to help St. Jude continue its mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

GoldrushThe music of Goldrush crosses many boundaries of American music, but is rooted heavily in traditional country, bluegrass and American folk. Goldrush is well known for taking great songs from many other genres and giving them a new life powered by a broad array of acoustic instruments that portray these beautiful songs in a different light. 

CJ West & the Downtown TrainCJ West and The Downtown Train plays country, rock, rhythm & blues and "whatever!"  They LIKE so many different styles of music, it would be a shame to limit what they play to one genre. The Downtown Train plays kickin' country music, classic and modern.  Most of the band has rock and roll roots so mixing that in was a no-brainer. 

Beth & the BoysBeth & the Boys features Beth Sapia on vocals and CT Country Music Hall of Fame inductees, Joe and John Monthei. They play a wide variety of country, folk rock and rock covers that you will enjoy, including Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, Carly Simon, Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, CCR, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, Natalie Merchant, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland and Lady name a few.

Jackson HillJackson Hill is a contemporary country jam band from right here in Durham. Covering popular country classics and contemporary country songs such as 'Boondocks', 'Gunpowder and Lead', '19 Somethin', and original songs including 'Doubt' and 'Better Time'.

This free, family-friendly festival brings together great music, delicious food, an amazing Corn Maze and fun activities for kids! Plenty of activities for the whole family including pony rides, face painting and fruit picking in our orchard! The music festival is free though some of the activities are available for a nominal fee.
