Schedule of Farm Dinners & Festivals



Sunday, September 24 - 11AM & 12PM SEATINGS
JAZZ BRUNCH

In 1926, The Hartford Courant conducted a poll: should jazz be allowed to be performed in public on Sunday? The results: at 3 to 1, the consensus was clear that Connecticut was not ready for jazz on Sunday. Fortunately, that vote was not binding and Max Chef to Farm brings you:
Jazz Brunch on the Farm.
We will tickle your taste buds with brunch favorites served under the tent while local jazz greats tickle the ivory. Bring the family to enjoy live performances, sample potables from Rosedale Farms & Vineyards and partake in Chef Hunter Morton of Max’s Oster Bar’s legendary brunch offerings. Mimosas & a Bloody Mary Bar goes without saying! Fresh juices for the kiddos!
Seating 1 is at 11am and Seating 2 is at noon. All tickets include the concert at 1pm.

Adults: $55 + Eventbrite fee and includes full brunch buffet and non-alcoholic beverages.
Children (12 and under) is $19 + Eventbrite fee.
Additional menu items and full bar available for purchase - we take cash or credit for a la carte items.
LOCATION : ROSEDALE FARMS & VINEYARDS - SIMSBURY, CT
