Harvest Festival Update

The SHS Harvest Festival will be held September 28th and 29th, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day. This will be the same format as the previous 39 years, with old-fashioned apple butter, historic house tours, musical entertainment, craft vendors, and concession stand. The craft vendor reservation (application) form is now posted on the Craft Vendors page of our website at http://www.stowhistory.org/harvest-festival/vendors/. Also posted are two informational flyers. Feel free to print these and pass out to prospective vendors and attendees.

We need all of our members’ participation to make this year’s festival a success.

Thank you to all volunteers who participated in our recent annual  Harvest Festival, held September 29th and 30th. The weather was great and we had many returning and new craft vendors.  Attendees enjoyed the music (Rock Salt and Nails on Saturday and Dale Galgozy on Sunday), historic buildings and exhibits,  farm animals, concessions, pop-up Library, pumpkin painting, wood carvers, blacksmiths, chair caner, and of course, the hay wagon ride and stirring of the apple butter.
