Get a little rural living without leaving the city limits at the 30th iteration of this down-home festival. For two days, the Queens County Farm Museum will become even more agrarian than usual with livestock competitions, pie-eating contests, awards for the fastest corn huskers and pig races. Country & western quintet Savannah Sky, big-band ensemble Something Special, and Irish and German musicians will keep your feet stomping. While there, try to make your way through the Amazing Maize Maze, a three-acre labyrinth, or take a spin on carnival rides. Glean tips on fashioning your own farm-to-table fare at a colonial cooking demo, or knock back a few at a Bavarian beer garden. To enter your own craft, vegetable, or baked or canned goods in one of the blue-ribbon contests, e-mail email@example.com.
