Horse Rescue Benefit Concert; A tribute to late founder Kathy Schwartz-Howe


The NOT TO BE MISSED music event is back! The Days End Farm annual benefit concert welcomes back to Maryland’s premier horse farm, The 19th Street Band with friends, Patty Reese & Band, on the front lawn at the new Arts & Education Pavilion affectionately called “The Hitching Post”. This years concert will pay tribute to Day End Farm’s late founder, Kathy Schwartz-Howe, who passed away earlier this year where they’ll honor her incredible legacy throughout the farm and with music. Enjoy popular food trucks, beer & wine, lawn games, and farm tours to meet the rescue horses – there is something for the whole family!!

Book a day out in the country (at our Woodbine, MD facility) and watch the sunset over our fields, while swaying to the music of arguably 2 of the best groups of musicians in the area!
