About: Harvest Faire is a modern interpretation of a late 15th century European fall harvest celebration and tournament. Entertainers and a market mix with the sounds of good-natured martial competition and the smells of period cooking. Watch a craftsperson plying their trade, try your hand at games of chance and skill, and cheer for the warrior of your choice at the Field of Honors. Wander through 6 acres of village on a 22 acre site. Harvest Faire is produced and staffed entirely by volunteers. Harvest Faire is a non-profit 501c3 charity that raises funds for local charitable non-profits.  This year profits will go to the Peninsula SPCA.
