2019 Autumn Harvest Festival — Noon-3 p.m. — Step back in time with us at the Miller Farmstead. Our Autumn Harvest Festival brings guests back into the mid 1800s with historical tours of the farm, house, and land surrounding the area. The farmstead will be packed with historical demonstrations, games, traditional music, food, crafts, and more! Come out and support these local artists and re-enactors, or join in the fun by calling us to sign up as a vendor or re-enactor today.

In case of bad weather, the festival will be moved to the Visitor’s Center. If the festival will be moved, we will post it on our park Facebook page and have a sign re-directing guests from the Farmstead entrance. Meet at: Miller Farmstead.
