This year’s Harvest Festival will feature a special celebration of Stamford’s 375th Anniversary, as the SM&NC hosts members of the 5th Connecticut Regiment for the weekend. Tour the Regiment’s encampment on Heckscher Farm and learn about colonial life and times through their recreation of camp life, military drills, crafts, uniforms, and weapons of the period. The Regiment’s daily demonstrations on the Meadow will include firing muskets using blanks. Wear your trick-or-treat costume and march behind the Regiment as they lead our daily costume parade! Enjoy apple-cider and pumpkin-carving demonstrations, a scarecrow-making contest, and fun activities for the whole family. Other activities include an apple slingshot, farm animal demonstrations, live music with Jay and Ray, face-painting, storytelling with Ms. Karen, and children’s crafts. WSTC AM 1400 will also be broadcasting live from on-site throughout the weekend.
Feast on the delicious fare at an array of locally popular food trucks, from Boothbay Lobster Company, Cowabunga, and Melt Mobile, to Skinny Pines, Taco Loco, Valencia Luncheria, and more. And don’t forget to stop by Rosa’s Cantina for more treats, like cauldron-cooked corn.
Hayride tickets will also be available for purchase, or do some leaf-peeping on foot along one of our nature trails, including the scenic, fully accessible Wheels in the Woods. The Museum Galleries will be open with “The Art of Lolita Valderrama Savage: Nature of Tuscany, Stamford & Beyond” exhibition.
