Take a step back in time to the 1890s at Heritage Farmstead Museum’s fourth annual FarmFest. Held on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. FarmFest will be a big ol’ birthday party for the Farmstead – 125 years to be exact. The family friendly event ushers in fall with wagon rides, a Wylie Tractor Club exhibit, a kiddie tractor pull, tours of the Farmstead’s Farrell-Wilson house, children’s crafts and chicken poop bingo.
“This is a big year for Heritage Farmstead Museum and for our FarmFest event,” said Heritage Farmstead Museum Executive Director M’Lou Hyttinen. “We are hoping for record attendance, because we are celebrating a huge milestone – 125 years! I’m ready for the biggest birthday bash of the fall. Join us to celebrate autumn, our history and our unique community!”
The FarmFest event will also feature a pumpkin patch, set up in the Farmstead’s beautiful, historic meadow. Guests purchasing the family fun pack ticket option will receive one free pumpkin from the patch.
The North 40 Storytellers Guild will also present “Folk Tales and Farm Tales” as part of the event. A variety of concessions will be available on-site, and guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a pie eating contest.
Event tickets are $10 per person at the gate on event day or $8 for Heritage Farmstead Museum members. Early registration tickets (available through Friday) are $8 per person or $6 for Heritage Farmstead Museum members. Guests may also chose to purchase a family fun pack for $25, which includes four admissions and one free pumpkin from the pumpkin patch on event day.Purchase FarmFest Tickets >
