“Celebrating Penn’s Woods”

This year’s Harvest Festival theme of “Celebrating Penn’s Woods” will present an opportunity to explore the wilds of Quiet Valley’s native state. European settlers found much to recommend relocation from their homeland to this new, virgin territory. Springs and streams abounded, hard wood trees, including the black walnut, were plentiful. There was a profuse amount of fish and game available and even the limestone ridges had value. Pennsylvania had plenty to offer the generations of homesteaders that William Penn’s invitation attracted.

New for 2014 will be areas dedicated to tree and woods lore, presentations on useful and dangerous flora of early Pennsylvania, wildlife of the state and other natural resources such as limestone and waterways. Visitors can try their hand at tree identification, using a two man saw, trying a craft and learn how a lime kiln works.

There will be plenty of traditional skills and heritage crafts demonstrated such as spinning, weaving, broom making, scrapple making, apple butter making, basket making, candle making. There will also be plenty of folk entertainment, good country food, children’s activities, pumpkin decorating, a quilt raffle, pony rides, horse drawn wagon rides, one room schoolhouse presentation, outdoor brick bake oven and much more.

The New Jersey Frontier Guard will portray French and Indian War soldiers trekking through the farm.

The Civil War Encampment is always a favorite at Harvest Festival. The 142nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Co. G Re-enactors will portray the drill and every day life of soldiers in the 19th century giving visitors a special glimpse into local history.

There will be lots of entertainment, games and contests to round out the festival.

Harvest Festival will be a day visitors of all ages can enjoy.
