      41st Annual Harvest Festival

      More event info coming soon! Find two days of live performances, music, and family activities. Each day in the Festival Tent, find children’s craft activities plus outdoor games.  The ongoing traditions of Harvest Festival contribute to its charm. Nineteenth-century musicians Jim Kimball and Dick Bolt have added to the festival’s ambiance since the late 1970s. Also part of Harvest Festival for nearly 40 years, Dickens the Clown delights children and the young at heart throughout the museum grounds. Animals always take the spotlight at Harvest Festival. Take a ride through the museum’s grounds in a horse-drawn wagon. Watch a parade of prize-winning animals from the museum’s annual Junior Livestock Show.  If you like historical trades, you won’t be disappointed at Harvest Festival. Get hands-on with rope making, and see spinning and fiber art demonstrations.  The Ag Tent features the Cooperstown Farmers Market, Leatherstocking Beekeepers, Otsego County Maple Producers, Otsego County Dairy Promotion, and Kingfisher Lavender. Harvest Fest gives visitors the opportunity to assist our interpreters with the harvesting of potatoes and other crops on the museum’s Lippitt Farmstead. Children enjoy additional agricultural activities that include corn shelling and grinding, and grain flailing and winnowing, apple bobbing, and apple pressing. The entire family can take part in games and crafts as well as free carousel rides – sponsored by Matt Sohns and family. An abundance of delicious foods from the season’s harvest awaits festival-goers, featuring roasted corn, pulled pork, chili, hot dogs, and Huff Ice Cream. You will also find homemade pies, fresh baked goods, and cider slushies. Walk to the museum from the village of Cooperstown and enter through our convenient South Gate.
