Watermelon Party and Live Music

In our 2016 feedback survey,  Members consistently said what they like best about  The Homestead is simply being out here with their families. This year we have designed all our programming around some excellent opportunities for simply hanging out together at The Homestead. This is our first of four Member Appreciation Parties. There is no cost for Members. Non-members may attend for $8/person or $20/family.

The Homestead begins our season in August with our university and school-year. This year we kick off an incredible year of programming with our Watermelon Party. Join us with a picnic for larger-than-life garden games, seed spitting, swimming, and live music. 

We want to see your creative juices flow! Bring a watermelon themed food, activity, or decoration to share. Or, enter our watermelon sculpting contest. Enter your best creation. We have prizes for our winners and a relaxing evening in store for all.

Please email thehomesteadms@gmail.com to enter! We have three prizes:
