Annual Arts Festival

In 2006, Rubicon began its series of wonderful, expansive and exciting art festivals at the Smoke Farm venue. The festivals uniquely support both artists and the Rubicon community. They provide artists a chance to work with a remarkable environment, creating a hearth for creative ideas, a forum for community feedback and support, and a beautiful platform for site-specific art, dance, sculpture, poetry, painting, and theater. Then, open to everyone, they allow a great opportunity for a family or student to get away from the city for a day, and greet the farm. After a day’s meandering through trees studded with sculpture, dancers in the tall grass, and paintings on the trail, the attendees, artists, and volunteers alike are invited to sit down for a beautiful meal and enormous bonfire.
