Celebrate All Things Fall at Goodell Gardens
Those dedicated to the fall season should not miss Goodell Gardens' 12th Annual Homegrown Harvest Festival.
Sunday, Sept. 17
Oh, hey there, September with your fall things and pumpkin spice and harvest festivals. Yes, it's that time of year again (already?), and those decidedly dedicated to the season should not miss Goodell Gardens' 12th Annual Homegrown Harvest Festival.
The farm and gardens' "capstone" event features "something for everyone," according to a spokesperson. This year, attendees can anticipate a local farmer's market, face painting by Taradoodles for the kiddos (and kiddos at heart), The Real Magic Steve, who will be wowing the crowds with his tricks and balloon animals (3 p.m.), delectable goodies from Pastries by Andrea, and spicy treats from Diablo Pepper farm. There will be a juried art show featuring handmade goods, food for hungry folk from vendors like A Waffle Miracle and Northern Scoop ice cream, and live music to provide a compelling soundtrack. Musical performances will take kick off at noon with the Goodell Gardens String Band, followed by TK Blues Co. at 1 p.m. and Basket Eddy rounding out the event from 3 to 5 p.m.
If that isn't enough to tantalize the senses and prompt that cozy fall feeling, attendees can also participate in a raffle to win donated items from a range of local businesses such as Gallery 104, Campbell Pottery and Wooden Nickel Buffalo Farm.
So grab that warm sweater, put on those boots and embrace the fall at Goodell Gardens — and enjoy this "unique event in a beautiful location." — Miriam Lamey
