Enjoy the splendor of autumn at Blandford's Harvest Festival on October 1st, 2022! Bring the whole family to enjoy a day of crafts, games, candle dipping, face painting, horse petting, and more. You can even make your own scarecrow* to take home with you! This fun-filled day will also include wildlife presentations, blacksmith demonstrations, log cabin interpretation, and concessions--including food for sale from El Caribe Food Truck.

*One scarecrow per family, please. Scarecrow supplies is limited; the first 100 families who would like to make a scarecrow will receive a scarecrow ticket upon check-in.

Wildlife Shows will occur at 11am and 1pm in the auditorium.
