Harvest Festival Returns to Falmouth for First Time Since 2013

FALMOUTH – For the first time since 2013 the Harvest Festival is coming to Falmouth at the Cape Cod Fairgrounds.

The festival highlights the seasonal harvest from local farms and spotlights local crafters and artisans in the two day fall celebration.

“The Harvest Fest is really kind of picking up right where we left off. We have a little bit of stuff for everybody,” said Fair Manager Wendy Brown.

“We have arts and crafts, all sorts of a livestock, all sorts of children activities, our beer garden, lots of food trucks, so it should be just a great time.”

The festival runs from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on September 22 to September 23. In addition to the local food vendors and beer garden, the event will also include arts and crafts, local farm animals, trolley rides, a horse show, and kid-friendly amusement rides.

On Saturday night, the Festival will be followed by the sixth annual Cape Cod Comedy Festival, starting at 7:00 p.m. A portion of each ticket purchased goes to Barnstable County Agricultural Society, Inc. Scholarship Program, which awards four-year scholarships to Cape Cod students each year.

“We’ll have three to six farmers on sight both days so come on down. You can get your fresh vegetables and fall harvest and support the local farming community,” Brown said. “This event has always been a very grassroots, family oriented event and we’re very pleased to bring it into the community.”

Admission to the Harvest Festival is $7 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and current or veteran military members with a valid I.D., and just $3 for children. Kids under the age of five get in for free.
