Festival Preview: Huichica East Festival Serves Organic Music And Food For Your Soul


Happening on September 30th and October 1st, at its core, Huichica focuses on bringing a curated experience- not only in music but in its artisanal provisions. Personally, I cannot recall a single festival, from Panorama to Afropunk, that puts equal attention to both their serving as well as the music. Thus, Huichica East festival promises to be both a fun and delicious experience.  



Farms are the back-bone of America, and powerhouse chef- couple, Adam and Amy Lawton, are bringing their delectable dishes to expose the freshness that organic foods can offer. You can literally taste the difference in farmstead cheeses, free range eggs, pork and beef, etc. Yet, they are not alone in proving healthy food comes straight from the earth, and not from a machine processor. Jeff Bundschu is bringing his famed  Sonoma wine, which inspired him to create this micro-festival with musician Eric D. Johnson, as method of bringing food consciousness through goof music. Why? Because the food we put in our stomach is as important  as the music we put into our hearts.  

The Menu For The Event  YUM!!!!


When asked about the meaning of this festival  Bundschu was clear and positive, 

 Huichica is basically great music, great produce, and no bad attitudes. We love it when the artists and purveyors themselves are great people- the kind you’d want to hang with,” said co-founder, Jeff Bundschu. “It has been a dream to bring what we’ve created in Sonoma, California to Hudson Valley, New York to the historic Chaseholm Farm, a most majestic setting among rolling hills and green pastures. The inaugural weekend is going to be epic!”

The micro fest will be held at the Chaseholm Farm, a grass-based dairy and beef farm nestled in a 350-acre patchwork of pastures, crop land, woods and waterways located in the Pine Plains. Children are encouraged to attend, and admission is FREE for those under the age of 12. Camping will be available for this two-day festival. Camping and festival tickets are available for purchase online HERE. One-day passes are $50 and two-day passes are $90.
