Come celebrate Johnny Appleseed’s birthday! Bring the whole family to a harvest festival at the Justin Morrill State Historic Site. Features face-painting and live music by Out on a Limb. Meet live farm animals—the kind that Justin Morrill would have had on his small 19th-century farm. Make your own cider in an antique press, taste heirloom apples, fine artisan Vermont Cheeses, Vermont ice cream and homemade apple pie. Play period games, hike the lookout trail and play Valley Quest. Also includes gardens, exhibits, an icehouse, ice pond and a historic home decorated with gingerbread designs.
The musical group Out on a Limb plays a selection of music from Hank to Hendrix—from old timey banjo and fiddle tunes thru jazz standards. Featuring Rick Barrows (mandolin and vocals), Bob Totz (Guitar, Harmonica trumpet and Vocals), Melissa Desiervo (Banjo, clarinet and vocals), Steve Glazer (guitar and vocals) and Erin Smith (fiddle, bass and vocals).
This event sponsored by: Bushway Insurance Agency; Flint, Blake & Boles Roofing; and Kate Cassidy of Four Seasons/Sotheby’s International Realty.
