Help ring in the fall with one of Stuhr Museum's most popular events, the Harvest Festival Fair, Saturday and Sunday September 16 & 17. 

The Harvest Festival Fair combines the 1895 Agricultural Fair with the Harvest Festival into one event packed with history, activity and fun. From the exhibits and games of an 1890’s fair to the cooking demonstrations common around the harvest to the dozens of special events and activities, you will not want to miss this event.

Events run from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday and from Noon – 5 p.m. on Sunday. Events include:

● An agricultural fair in Railroad Town including farm machinery exhibits, food, artwork exhibits, a modest midway, fun photo opportunities and a fortune teller.
● Fall themed games and pumpkin decorating in the field next to the Glade Roller Mill (Saturday only, pumpkins first come first serve).
