The Poore Family Music,Arts and Homesteading Festival 2015, will take place on the grounds of the 100 acre Poore Family Homestead and Museum campus, located on NH Route 145, in Stewartstown, NH, Saturday August 22nd and into Sunday August 23rd. Sunday afternoon will be an open jam session.

The Festival will be held at the Poore Farm’s outdoor stage and amphitheater, in the south field. The Stage was built in 2004, with funding from the NH State Council on the Arts, with the purpose of expanding the Museum’s capability to host artistic and cultural events in the North Country. The Museum has been hosting live events and demonstrations since 1986.

After his death, Kenneth Poore (1885-1983), the last Poore descendant, bequeathed his farm and created The Poore Family Foundation for North Country Conservancy. Its purpose is to serve as a historical and educational site, to a way of life that existed prior-to rural electrification. We realize this event requires electricity, but in an ampitheater setting, much less power is required given the natural acoustic of the space.

The New Hampshire Preservation Alliance has recognized the Poore Family Farm as one of the “Seven Sites to Save”, and is listed as an Endangered Historic Property in 2014.

Proceeds from Poore Fest 2015 directly support the Poore Family Homestead Historic Farm Museum, their programs and future events.
