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!
Award-winning duo, Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly, perform traditional American and Celtic folk songs and percussive dance. Elwood and Aubrey blend gorgeous harmonies and play an astonishing array of instruments including guitar, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, mandolin, tin whistle, harmonica, banjo, limberjacks, and other surprises including a thrilling interpretation of freestyle Appalachian clog dancing. Thank you to our sponsors for helping to make Harvest Fair possible!
During July and August, artists working in all media used Coggeshall Farm Museum as a place of inspiration. The artwork they produced is truly inspirational!
Come to the Arts on the Farm Exhibit at Harvest Fair and see the winning submissions on display. Several of our participating artists also have vendor booths, so if you like what you see, you may be able to purchase it directly from the artist.
