Harvest Festival!

Most agricultural communities in the 19th century had some form of Harvest Festival. This may have been celebrated as a County Fair, a barn dance, or even religious celebrations. We even have a National Harvest Festival in the form of Thanksgiving. For what else is a harvest festival than a giving of thanks for the harvest of food and crops that will keep you though the long winter’s nights?
The Farmers’ Museum continues this tradition with our own Harvest Festival.
