Harvest Fest -- New York

Bring the kids to the Almanzo Wilder Farm in Burke, New York, on Saturday, September 27, to celebrate the annual Harvest Fest. Children can paint pumpkins, make scarecrows, and play old-fashioned games.

The original farmhouse lived in by Almanzo Wilder and his family during his childhood, described in Farmer Boy, as well as the replica barns that have been built on the property will be open, and guests are free to walk through and look around as they wish. Textile demonstrations, such as spinning and weaving that Mother Wilder did, will be given.

A Civil War encampment and live musical entertainment will also be part of the festival. Activities run from 10 am to 4 pm. Contact the Almanzo Wilder Farm for more information.
