Croft Farm to get in the October spirit

September 15, 2013 by  

Croft Farm, which at one time was a stop on the Underground Railroad, has become a center for arts in Cherry Hill, and several events are held throughout the year which attract many area visitors. This October, two popular annual events will be returning to the farm.

Firstly, the Fall into the Arts juried photography show will be occurring at the farm as of mid-October. The deadline for applications is October 9, and the show caters for all ages and skills. Each person is allowed to submit three pieces only at $10 each. On October 12, there will be an opening reception and light refreshments will be served.

Fall into the Arts will get underway in earnest from October 14 and continue until October 26 at the Croft Farm Arts Center. Admission is free.

After that, the Harvest Festival, which is also Fire and Life Safety Day, will be taking place. It will feature hayrides, a pumpkin patch, pony rides, and a farmers’ market. There will also be emergency vehicle displays and a fire hose squirt. Several of the activities will be aimed at children, such as face painting, ID registration, and having their picture taken with a fireman. Refreshments will be available as well.

The Harvest Festival will be held on October 20 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Admission is also free.

Both events will likely be widely advertised in the community thanks to the help of Cherry Hill printing companies. To find out more about either of them, call 856-488-7868.
