Getting there
We recommend you take public transportation instead of driving and parking at the concert.  If you are staying in New Jersey, you can take NJ TRANSIT’s River LINE to the Camden Waterfront.  From Philadelphia, you can take the Riverlink Ferry.  Click here for driving directions (pdf).

Dining out
Dine out with your friends! Let Philadelphia and New Jersey chefs entice you with the delicious flavor of food from family farms. Participating restaurants will have one menu item identified as “Fresh From the Family Farm.” That means it’s either grown locally, produced by a family farm, or certified organic, and a portion of the proceeds benefit Farm Aid.

Food and Farming in the Delaware River Valley Region
The Delaware River Valley is an area rooted in family farm agriculture. Almost half of the land in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is used for agriculture, and the region boasts more than 200 farmers’ markets. Philadelphia is a city known for the strong support it shows regional family farms, and for its commitment to sustainability. At the same time, many of the region’s residents live below the poverty line and are at risk for hunger and malnutrition. Read more >>

Food Drive
Farm Aid will continue its tradition of hosting a food drive at the concert.  Bring non-perishable food items to the concert to donate to Philabundance, our local partner for the food drive. The donated food will be sent to over 600 Delaware Valley agencies that help the needy. Please bring items in boxes, cans or plastic bottles, that do not have to be refridgerated. Family size items are appreciated. Do not bring items in glass containers and do not bring baked goods including bread. Items most needed include mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, macaroni & cheese, canned green beans, canned corn, turkey gravy, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, and pasta.
