Harvest Festival


Step back in time to the late 18th century! Join us for this free family-friendly outdoor festival with costumed reenactors and harvest-themed vendors. September was the time of year when tenant farmers on the Philipse Manor would harvest their wheat and start to bring it to the Philipse grist mills for assessment and grinding into flour. September was also apple harvest time in the Philipse orchards. Learn about grinding grain, pressing apples for cider, and other harvest time tasks. Visit local and historical vendors. Plus try your hand at historical games! Meet 18th century military and civilian reenactors, including General George Washington and his horse Nelson, members of Lord Dunmore’s Ethiopian Regiment and the First Rhode Island Regiment, colonial era craftsmen, and more.
