What could be better in America’s Dairyland than to celebrate June Dairy Month with breakfast on a dairy farm! This weekend’s events also include ethnic festivals and a variety of live music. Real Racine has some great suggestions.

Come to the farm. Bring the family to a special summer event from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Schaal Dairy Farm, 1800 McKee Road, rural Burlington. Racine County Breakfast on the Farm is a wonderful opportunity to tour a working dairy farm, meet farm animals and have a country breakfast of eggs, sausage, juice, cheese and, of course, milk. Admission is $6 per person; kids ages 3 years old and younger eat free. The event is organized by Racine County Dairy Promotion and hundreds of volunteers.

A celebration in song. The 8th Annual Dan Jam Music Festival is 2 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Johnson Park pavilion, 6200 Northwestern Ave. There is continuous live music, kids activities, food, raffles and a silent auction. Dan Jam, an annual tribute to the late Dan Connor, has donated more than $27,500 and 2,750 pounds of food to the Racine County Food Bank. Admission is $10, or $8 with two non-perishable food items.

Gyros and more. Music, dancing and food, food, food at the 51st Annual Greek Fest on the grounds of the Kimissis Greek Orthodox Church, 1335 S. Green Road. A gyros lunch will served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Festival hours are 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 12 to 10 p.m. Saturday and 12 to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Season kickoff. The Racine Symphony Orchestra (RSO) starts its 85th season Friday with an RSO Summer Pops Concert. You’re invited to wear your red-and-white-and-blue attire as guest vocalist Doug Clemons and the orchestra present an evening of moving patriotic music. During the performance you’ll see a montage of photos of local veterans during their time of military service. The concert is at Racine’s Festival Hall, 5 Fifth St. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. General admission is $23. Students ages 21 and younger admitted free (ticket required).

Don’t miss the Kids. The Kids From Wisconsin, a high-energy musical variety troupe, makes its first-ever appearance at the Racine Zoo, 2131 N. Main St., at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The 30-plus member “Kids” are now touring Wisconsin and Illinois and will appear before huge crowds at the Wisconsin State Fair in August. Advance tickets are just $10 per person.

Kabobs and tradition. Racine’s St. Hagop Armenian Church presents its annual Armenian Picnic from 10:30 a.m to 7 p.m. Sunday at Johnson Park, 6200 Northwestern Ave. You won’t want to miss the beef kebab or chicken dinners, sarma (stuffed grape leaves), penelee (cheese puffs) or khurabia (butter cookies).
