At the 11th annual HarvestFest, there will be several entertaining contests for the whole family to enjoy.

Finally, for all those you sit around eating pumpkin seeds, this event is just for you – it’s a pumpkin seed-spitting contest! Breakfast will be served, as well as a wine and beer garden for attendees that are 21 and over. Since the festival is open all day, various types of delicious foods will be available for purchase all day.
Come out and enjoy an art show, perusing through antiques and various arts and crafts vendors selling a variety of items. This is your chance to shop around for unique items such as handcrafted jewelry, accessories and more. There will also be a live concert and other forms of entertainment lined up throughout the day. There will be a dance floor for when the music starts going! Feel free to bring your kids along, as there will be an area filled with children’s activities!
