2010 Sussex County Harvest Festival
The first annual Sussex County Harvest Festival is coming up! Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 23rd. It will be held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds, 37 Plains Road, Augusta, from 10am - 5pm. This will be a celebration of agritourism, ecotourism and heritage tourism. The County of Sussex is joining with the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show and Peters Valley to highlight New Jersey's great northwest. There will be a farmers market where you can buy fresh and buy local Sussex County and Jersey Fresh products. Demonstrations by Peters Valley artisans will both educate and amaze. And there will be displays and information from environmental and agricultural organizations including materials about our many state parks. The Soil Conservation District will host the Soil Tunnel - this 15' high structure walks you through the important nature of "dirt"! And the Farm Fun building will have games and activities geared for children. The Sussex County Harvest Festival is a free, family oriented event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
