As if the food and relaxed country atmosphere of Heritage Prairie weren't enough to entice you to the farm, Majors Junction guarantees to set the stage -- and your feet -- on fire.

Majors Junction is well known throughout Chicago for its diverse meld of country honky-tonk blues with folk undertones, hints of blue grass and good old rock 'n' roll. In fact, you may have seen the band at the House of Blues or at the Chicago Bluegrass and Blues Festival. If not, be sure to give their music a listen at

Farm Dinners at Heritage Prairie have been a tradition since 2007. The chef delights in tailoring menus to highlight the best of the season's fresh flavors. All are welcome to this school benefit.
