Evergreen's Harvest Festival Welcomes Community

October 4, 2013

The 33rd annual Harvest Festival will be on Saturday, October 12 from noon to 5 p.m. at The Evergreen State College’s Organic Farm.

The free event, which is organized by The Evergreen Community Gardens and open to the public, will offer 15 free workshops, face painting, apple bobbing, a cider press, garden tours, and other activities.

“We’re excited to be able to offer free pumpkins for carving, and free cider,” said Ali Mediate, the festival event coordinator. “If folks have extra apples, please feel free to bring them along so the cider never runs out, the more the better!”

In addition to the workshops and activities, there will be local vendors with handmade items for sale, community organizations and local bands playing throughout the afternoon.

Parking is available in the college’s C parking lot, which is free on weekends. Follow the signs along the trail to the Organic Farm. Parking will be available at the farm for those who need assistance getting to the event. For directions to Evergreen, please visit http://www.evergreen.edu/tour/gethere.htm.
