The local acoustic-rock band Hops & Vines will provide musical entertainment and World’s Fare Food Truck will serve meals from fresh, locally grown food. World’s Fare Catering prides itself on its local mentality, just like the Student Farm. Admittance to the event is entirely free but guests are encouraged to bring some money for the food truck.
Like any good summer celebration, however, guests can feel free to bring a picnic dinner of their own. Other picnic essentials – blankets, chairs, and the like – are also strongly encouraged. In the case of poor weather conditions, guests should check the Student Farm Facebook page for updates.
The Student Farm is located on the corner of Big Hollow Road and Fox Hollow Road in State College. This one-acre, student-run farm has taken off in recent years after students – including Hayly Hoch – lobbied the university for a student farm, believing it would greatly benefit students interested in such a venture. Since the farm’s inception, it has become a point of pride for Penn State and the local community.
