The 2015 North Branch Festival will be held Thursday September 3, 2015 through Sunday September 6, 2015
Early Bird Camping and Field Picking begins AFTER 10 AM on WEDNESDAY September 2, 2015. There's a $10 per person Early Bird festival donation added to Weekend Pass purchase to help cover our costs for this extra time.
Remember to bring a firepit if you plan on having a campfire. No digging or rock fireplaces allowed. You must use an elavated firepit that will not damage or scorch the field. Please... ABSOLUTELY DO NOT BRING FIREWOOD FROM MORE THAN 50 MILES AWAY. This will reduce the risk of importing any invasive insect into Bridgewater's many acres of timberland. We have provided split firewood with a donation box that campers may share. Please be generous.
A dependable flashlight for all campers is a must. A "Shot in the dark" in a porta potty can make a mess nobody likes to discover.
If you are a person that requires hand santitizers, kindly bring your own along with you.
Affordable food is available daily throughout the weekend at our new mobile kitchen. We serve Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, Hot Dogs, Italian Sausages, Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, Tuna Rolls, Chili, French Fries,Sweet Potato Fries, Popcorn, Chips, Cookies, Brownies, Root Beer Floats, Soda, Water, Coffee, and Tea as well as fresh Breakfast Sandwiches in the morning. On Saturday night there's also a $7 Spaghetti Dinner at 6 pm. Jars of homemade North Branch Farm Blueberry jam are also available for sale.

This is a privately-owned festival that we, Randy and Heather Kennedy, have built entirely from scratch with all of our life savings. So far, we have yet to earn a single dollar of profit for our risks and efforts. We create this affordable family-friendly experience in our beautiful field each year in memory of and to honor our precious older sisters, Wendy and Jane. Our rules may sound strict but all were created to preserve your continued happiness & safety...and ours.
Sponsorships are not tax-deductible but might qualify for a tax write-off as business advertising.
