  • September 8th 2019 11:00am - 4:00pm
  • FREE Admission | $3 Parking Fee

The Harvest Festival highlights the bounty and talent of both Sullivan County and the surrounding areas. It is free, family-friendly and features more than 100 vendors, including a farmer's market, craft and artisan goods, specialty food, beer, wine, spirits, and food trucks. Offerings also include live music, a creative learning tent, corn and hay mazes, and horse and buggy rides.

On September 8th, the inaugural Abandoned Hard Cider Garden, presented by Parksville-based Abandoned Hard Cider, will come alive in the Harvest Festival’s special event tent for one day only! Gather and socialize with friends and family, while indulging in Sullivan County’s finest cider varieties and delightfully paired light fare. Abandoned Hard Cider will also be hosting an Apple Crowdsourcing Station, inviting local landowners to drop off and donate their “abandoned” apples for the cidery to use towards future cider production!

Make art in the Creative Learning Tent! Inspired by our featured partner, create apple bird feeders.

Activities will differ by week!

PLUS, enjoy live music on the Harvest Festival stage!

12:00 PM - 1:30 PM: The Meadows Brothers; presented by Bold Gold Media Group.

Please no pets. Please note that a portion of West Shore Road, from Perry Road to Hurd Road will be closed from 11am-4pm on each Harvest Festival date. Please use alternate route.
