Life is good, New England’s laid back clothing company, holds its 2011 charity festival this weekend in Canton, MA — 15 miles southwest of Boston. Two days of music will take place at the historic Prowse Farm with the aim of raising $1 million for the Life is good Playmakers, dedicated to helping children overcome life-threatening challenges through the power of play and optimism.
Barefoot Truth, out of Mystic, CT, will open the music festival on Saturday, ushering in festivities that over 20 other bands will take part in — including The Avett Brothers, Martin Sexton, Ray Lamontagne, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and many more. The Boston Pops will be on hand to play with The Levon Helm Band and Brandi Carlisle, and a stage just for the kids features Laurie Berkner and her band on both days. Boston’s own Ryan Montbleau Band will perform on Sunday.
In addition to music, there will be arts and crafts, games, an array of delicious local food, shows and other activities sure to appeal to all ages.
The Life is good Festival begins both Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 am, with music starting at 11:45, and doors close at 9:30 pm. Single day adult tickets go for $65, $120 for both days; kids 2-12 single day for $20, $35 for both. Children under 2 are free.
Helpful info with T schedules for the weekend as well as shuttle information (and a healthy dash of humor) can be found HERE.
If you’re looking to have a good time with the family that’ll help support a great cause, head to the Life is good Festival this weekend!
