We regret to announce the Harvest Moon Festival, typically held in Whiteside Park, is canceled for 2020.
In its place is our virtual Harvest Moon Festival featuring some of your favorite artists, crafters, and makers. The virtual festival will run from September 10-30, 2020. New this year is our Business Harvest Days event that also starts on September 10 and runs through the 14th. Check out the participating businesses and all the activities occurring during Harvest Days.
