Two years ago, we worked with other villagers in Sharon Springs to plan our first Harvest Festival. Schoharie County was once known as “the breadbasket of the American Revolution” and supposedly has some of the most fertile soil of anywhere in the world. We wanted to honor that heritage but also try to acknowledge to all of the members of our community how fortunate we are to have some many great farms and farm families surrounding us. It’s easy to overlook the treasures you have in your own backyard.
The first festival drew around 500 people. For the second festival over 5000 people showed up.
This year’s festival will be held on Sept 24 and 25. For more information as the event draws closer, sign up for our email newsletter by clicking here.
The 2011 Harvest Festival also spawned another tradition–a Garden Party Festival each Spring to celebrate the planting. If you have nothing else planned for Memorial Day Weekend, come visit us in Sharon Springs and get your hands dirty.
If you would like to be a vendor at either festival please send your contact information and your product or idea to firstname.lastname@example.org
