For 7 years the Art Farm hosted Synchronicity, a summer arts and cultural festival. It was designed as an event to share ideas, creativity and inspiration within the community, and to celebrate the joy of living in such a bountiful place. The festival included many thought-provoking art installations, multiple live music stages, workshops, a pop-up art shop, and local food and drink vendors. The festival was famous for its live music, community engagement art pieces, and the popular Rainforest Circus theatrical production.

Synchronicity Festival Sprouts
The first Synchronicity Festival was hosted on the Art Farm property and included the first Rainforest Circus production. When the venue for the circus needed to grow, so did the festival! The first Shirley Macey Park festival consisted of a few tents surrounding the entrance and exit to the circus for artists, farmers, and musicians, which over time grew into a world-class festival ground.
Roots of Synchronicity
Regardless of the scale, our team was dedicated to making Synchronicity Festival a place to share ideas, enjoy each others company, and participate in some small way towards creating a more connected community.
It was incredible to watch this event grow to the capacity we saw in our final years. Due to the demands of our rapidly growing organization, we decided we needed to focus our resources on other projects. Thank you to all our volunteers, artists and attendees over the years who gave their time, energy and spirit to this project.
Thanks to our primary sponsors and funders.
