Harvest Fair & Folk Festival at Soule Homestead



There is so much going on this weekend at our 24th Annual Harvest Fair and Joe Davies Folk Festival. We tried hard to squeeze it all onto one page but we just couldn't!! We have amazing local crafters selling everything from soap to jewelry and art work so start that holiday shopping now. We have cultural exhibits from South Coast Historical Associates and Mass Archaeological Society, raffles and a ton more. New this year we will have a local food vendor in addition to our usual tasty options. Saturday we welcome Martha's Eat Local and Sunday we will have Chariot Pizza. Also, don't forget to bring your own water bottle as Simpson Spring has generously donated spring water to keep you hydrated.

Additional information can be found on Facebook www.facebook.com/soulehomestead.

We hope to see you!
