Harvest Festival at the Farmers' Museum
A perfect blend of new attractions and trusted favorites make the 36th annual Harvest Festival the most entertaining celebration of fall in the area. Live performances, family activities, crafts, demonstrations, and storytime. Animals are always a large part of Harvest Festival. Take in the whole museum on a horse-drawn wagon ride. Marvel at demonstrations of dog obedience and agility. See cuddly alpacas and watch their agility in an obstacle course. Many artisans show-off their skills; learn from blacksmithing, printing, spinning, and fiber art demonstrations. Harvest Fest includes the chance to help with harvesting potatoes, beans, corn, and hops. Children enjoy agricultural activities that include corn shelling and grinding. They can also enjoy the Children's Barnyard. You'll even watch apples pressed to make fresh cider. An abundance of delicious foods from the season's harvest.
