Come connect with the Earth and find the magic of the season through traditional craftways. There will be many opportunities to work with your hands and craft for the ritual and items to take home. Stay the night to enjoy the evening’s nighttime festivities and relax around the harvest fire. There will also be a judging of fall arrangements (center-pieces), pies, preserves, pickles, and breads in our Tastes of Fall contest in addition to a potluck meal.
