Horseradish Festival

Love horseradish? Running out of ideas for using this tasty herb? Visit the Horseradish Festival June 6 and 7 in Collinsville, Illinois, just across the river from St. Louis. Music, crafts and more food with horseradish in it than you can shake a stick at are all part of the fun, and there will be professional and amateur recipe contests. There's more horseradish acreage in Madison and St. Clair counties than the rest of the world combined. For more information, visit the website.

 

Stewardship Conference

If stewardship is among your priorities for your homestead, check out a conference June 10 and 11 in Denver. Changing Lands, Changing Hands: A National Conference on Farm and Ranch Access, Succession, Tenure and Stewardship focuses on how land is acquired, stewarded and passed on, and how that will shape the future of U.S. agriculture. This is the first national conference to address these critically important issues. Click here for more.

 



Brass Band Festival

The Great American Brass Band Festival, June 11 to 14 in Danville, Kentucky, has been named “this country’s most unique music festival.” It’s an old-time brass band concert in the park that recaptures the nostalgia of peaceful, turn-of-the-century America. Click here for more.
