Harvest Festival & Pumpkin Picking

Celebrate autumn at a family-friendly event on Oct. 9 with live music, food trucks, fun for kids, and other seasonal activities

Gather the family and head down to The Gardens at Heather Farm for the annual Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wander through the patch of vine-growing pumpkins, pick a pumpkin to take home, snap photos of the kids, dance to live music on the lawn, savor a great lunch and festive treats, and learn more about what makes The Gardens tick! Taste of the World Market, a popular new food truck company specializing in bringing gourmet cuisine from around the world to local communities, will be onsite to tantalize your tastebuds. Enjoy live music by award-winning, local acoustic Americana band, American Nomad throughout the day. Their eclectic mix of bluegrass, folk, country and blues will keep toes a-tappin’ throughout the day. Kids of all ages will enjoy planting activities, games and fun crafts about how to start a garden led by The Gardens youth education staff. The festivities also feature a bounce house, face-painting, healthy farmstand snacks, mini-photo sessions with a professional photographer (Kept in Time Photography), apple cider, apple doughnuts, and more.
