10th Annual Harvest Festival will be biggest yet

Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center will host its Tenth Annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, Sept. 14th, from 10 am to 3 pm.

Fall is a traditional time to celebrate the harvest’s bounty with food and fun. The event will include an array of activities, including craft activities for all ages, field games, farm animals, garden-tours, horse and tractor-drawn wagon rides, sing-alongs, and information and displays about all the programs offered at Prescott Farm.

Contra Dance Caller Byron Ricker

New this year, the Harvest Festival will feature a contra dance (beginning at 1 pm) led by caller Byron Ricker and featuring local musicians. No experience is necessary to participate; dances will be taught during the event.

Because of the generosity of these local businesses and organizations, admission is free with a nominal fee for some activities.
