Celebrate the fall season with family and friends at our annual Harvest Festival Weekend.
Watch an apple-cider making demonstration, try our hay bale climb, take a llama trek, and enjoy fun activities for the whole family! Other activities include antique farm tool demonstrations, animal meet 'n' greets, live music with Jay and Ray, face-painting, storytelling with Ms. Karen, and children's crafts - including our new Kindness Rocks table.
We're happy to welcome the Fifth Connecticut Regiment Colonial Militia Re-enactors for a "return engagement" at this year's Festival. Members of the Regiment will be on Heckscher Farm for an encampment and demonstrations throughout the weekend. Attendees will be invited to take part in a marching drill, watch a musket demo, and find out more about life as a member of our Colonial Militia!
Feast on the delicious fare at an array of locally popular food trucks on the Meadow, or buy a fresh cider donut (or two) from our Food Stand on Heckscher Farm. Cast your vote in a scarecrow contest, and wear a costume and participate in the costume parade each day! Apples for our popular slingshot at Bendel Pond will also be available for purchase, and the Museum Galleries will be open with the Illustrations of Imaginative Literature: The Korskak Collection exhibition.
