The third annual festival will feature food from local favorites NEAT, Jen Maher’s Little Bites and Savory Smoke Barbecue.

Families can tour the historic home during Harvest Fest and participate in a Hunt for the Silver scavenger hunt while learning about the Tory raid on the home during the Revolutionary War.
