Harvest Festival Returns to The
Farmers’ Museum’s Fall Lineup

After a two-year hiatus, celebrate the bounty of fall as the Harvest Festival returns to The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Since 1978, this family-friendly event has grown to become a regional favorite, bringing together a wide variety of performers, artisans, and vendors,” said Todd Kenyon, Director of Marketing. “We are excited it is returning.”

The festival is on the museum’s picturesque grounds near Otsego Lake. “We have the perfect blend of new attractions and trusted favorites,” Mr. Kenyon said. “Two days of live performances, music by folk singer and songwriter Kevin McKrell both days, and the museum’s Templeton Players will be on stage with two performances.”

Empire Carousel Carver Tells

How Small Effort Grew Large

Gerry Holzman tells how the Empire State Carousel started as one man's idea – his – but before the 20-year project was complete, more than 1,000 carvers, quilters and painters had participated in its creation.  Holzman was at The Farmers' Museum today at a ceremony marking the carousel's 10th anniversary in Cooperstown.   Rides on the carousel are free today and Sunday, and Holzman will be giving tours at 11 a.m. and 1, 2, 3 and 4 p.m. tomorrow.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
