This Week's Event

WE'RE BACK and it’s our HARVEST CELEBRATION! Help us celebrate fall’s harvest with a pumpkin pie contest, fall scavenger hunt, FREE turkey draw (just in time for Thanksgiving) and Blessings of the Animals with Rev. Monique Stone!

All who wish to enter the pumpkin pie contest (open to all - customers & vendors) must drop off their pumpkin pie between 8am and 11am at the Events Tent located at the rear of the Exhibit Hall. The pies will be judged on 3 criteria: overall appearance, taste and overall impression.

Special event for the kids, take part in our special fall-themed scavenger hunt! Scavenger hunt clues will be available at the Events Tent. Return your completed sheet with name and phone number for your chance to win a Pumpkin Carving Prize Kit, complete with pumpkin! Draw will take place at the end of the Harvest Celebration market on Saturday October 1st. Prize can be claimed at the market any Saturday in October between business hours (8am to 1pm). 

Our FREE Turkey Draw ballots will be located at the Hostess Booth in the Rotunda of the Exhibit Hall.

This Weeks Recipe

Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Bars


Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin! These bars are sure to be a hit with the family and have been described as fall deliciously wrapped-up in bar form (we really, really like them and practically begged a coworker for the recipe).
