Harvest Fair celebrates the simple life, engaging visitors of all ages in friendly competitions, games, lively music and dance, hay rides, pony rides and much more against the backdrop of a working 18th century living history farm.
For 43 years, Coggeshall Farm Museum has drawn visitors from across New England for this major festival. Bring the whole family for a day of good old-fashioned fun. There’s something for everyone! Try your hand at more than a dozen 18th-century games, discover one-of-a-kind handcrafted items from our talented vendors, visit our heirloom sheep and cattle on a hayride through the pasture, and put your artistic skills to work at our craft tables.
Great family-friendly food will be provided by a variety of vendors, along with Coggeshall’s own jonnycakes!
