Historical farm ready for its annual festival

September 30, 2013 by  

The 39th Harvest Festival will be taking place in Stroudsburg for two days this October at the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm. The farm dates back to the 18th Century and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Visitors to the festival will learn about historical skills and crafts from 19th Century America, such as broom-making, tatting, butter making, yarn dyeing, and quilting. There will also be plenty of food for purchase, live entertainment, and activities for children including pony rides, storytelling, games, and a pumpkin patch at which they can pick their own pumpkin to decorate. In addition, a quilt will be raffled off.

A popular part of the festival is always the Civil War encampment. Members of the 142nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry will be living as they would have in the 19th Century. They will show what everyday life was like for soldiers at that time.

It is probable that those who are organizing the festival will want to use the services of Stroudsburg print companies to help advertise it in the community. This might include designing and printing flyers, which can then be distributed in a variety of ways for very little cost.

The Harvest Festival will take place at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm from October 12 to 13 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm each day. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for those aged 3-12 and free for those aged two and under. To find out more about the festival, call 570-992-6161.
