New this year!

- Moved the date a week earlier, to October 19th – closer to peak fall colors!
- A more condensed layout, keeping all the activities closer together.
- Increased our parking and shuttling capacity.
- Vendors will be located throughout the festival.
- Increased food options, including more locations to buy food.
- Increased outdoor seating around the dining hall.
Whether you’re looking for some adventure, an opportunity to learn about history and the natural world, or just a chance to have fun, we will have activities for you!
