Enjoy a Fun-Filled Day of Wagon Rides, Farm Animals, Live Music, Hands-on Activities
On Sunday, September 16, from 12 noon to 5 p.m., spend the day at the Fall Harvest Festival, one of Morris County’s most popular fall festivals, at the Morris County Park Commission’s Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.
Hop aboard the open-air wagon for a scenic ride around the farm, visit the friendly farm animals, lend a hand churning butter and pressing apples into cider, and watch a blacksmith perform his craft.
Enjoy live music, and learn some new old-fashioned dance steps. Food will be available for purchase as well.
Stop by the 1920’s farmhouse to discover seasonal foods being prepared on the wood-burning cook stove, and watch a sewing demonstration on a treadle sewing machine. At the Visitors Center, experience the interactive display at the Transportation Exhibit. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Admission is $8 per adult, $7 per senior (65+), $6 per child age 4 through 16, and $4 per child age 2 and 3. FREE for children under age 2. Friends members are half price with a current membership card.
