Joseph Schenk purchased Odd Fellows Farm, just outside of Naples, a few years ago with the intent to create a music venue (and events space) in the hills of the Finger Lakes region, and launched The Purple Pig Festival as the farm's annual event. The festival — named after a wild bar once located in South Bristol — is now in its fifth year, and will host three days of music across three stages. Mosaic Foundation (August 18), Danielle Ponder & The Tomorrow People (August 19), and Caravan of Thieves (August 20) will headline the festival, which also features Sophistafunk, Blind Owl Band, Thunderbody, Big Mean Sound Machine, Mulberry Soul, The English Project, Dead Metaphor Quartet, and a barnful more. There's also on-site camping, an art gallery, a banjo workshop, drum sessions, food and drinks, and a little bit of theater every night.
The Purple Pig Festival will take place Thursday, August 18, through Saturday, August 20, at Odd Fellows Farm, 6144 Blodgett Road, Naples. Day passes are $25 for Thursday; $35 for Friday; $40 for Saturday; and $75 for the full weekend. Camping fee is included in ticket price. 310-4994; oddfellowsfarm.com.
