The Harvest Festival is back! Join us for this fun, fall annual family tradition on Saturday, Sept. 17, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Chickahominy Riverfront Park! The festival features free activities for the kids including face painting, arts and crafts, a petting zoo, inflatables, a tractor-pulled hayride and “touch a tractor” presented by James River Equipment! New this year, bring your lawn chairs and listen to great music from the local bluegrass band, Code Blue, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
Scarecrow Stuffing is back too by popular demand, so comemake the biggest, the best, and maybe the only scarecrow in your neighborhood. First-come first-served while supplies last. Local merchandise ($), food ($) and community vendors will also be onsite.
There’s no admission fee; however, parking is $5/car (check or cash only) and Scarecrow Stuffing is $20/scarecrow (includes all supplies; cash and check accepted at fairgrounds, credit cards accepted at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park Store). All ages welcome. Chickahominy Riverfront Park is located at 1350 John Tyler Highway.
