About Appel Farm
Appel Farm Arts & Music Center began as a private summer arts camp in 1960 – the dream of Albert and Clare Appel. Albert and Clare were musicians and professional arts educators who wanted to create a summer camp where the local rural community (and their own artistically-inclined children) could learn about and participate in the arts and where they could interact with like-minded peers and mentors. Appel Farm’s 115 acres of open fields and woods was an idyllic site for this purpose! For the past 50 plus years, Appel Farm Arts and Music Center has been transforming lives through the arts and its mission has grown to include year-round programming. Through on-site arts education programs, outreach to schools and community-based partnerships, Appel Farm provides people of all ages, cultures and economic backgrounds with a supportive, cooperative environment in which to explore the fine and performing arts. Appel Farm also hosts conferences, retreats and weddings from September through May in its modern and fully-equipped sleeping, dining and meeting facilities.
This June 3rd and 4th, Appel Farm Arts & Music Center will host its signature fundraising event, the second annual Appel Farm Music & Wine Festival. Raise a Glass to the Good Things! The Festival has expanded into a very special two-day event that brings together regional artists, musicians and wineries. Sample wine from regional Vintage Atlantic Wineries, shop at our Culinary Grove and Craft Faire, grab a bite to eat from one of our Food Trucks or enjoy a micro-brew. As an additional bonus, Festival guests are invited to enjoy the Overnight Experience! For more information and tickets, click here.
