Find some fresh vegetables, learn about growing mushrooms, kick-up your heels and join us at the first annual Harvest Heritage Festival presented by The Mancos Public Library on Sunday, September 22, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Boyle Park in Mancos. The festival will be a community celebration of the harvest season featuring fresh foods from local growers and producers, demonstrations of farming and heritage related skills, children’s games, arts and crafts, and musical performances.
Just for fun, festival-goers are encouraged to bring donations of seeds to add to the Seed Saving Library, containers and apples to take-home hand-pressed cider; a dish containing at least three locally grown ingredients for the Harvest Recipe Contest, and your dancing boots for line and square dances with caller Carla Roberts of the Wild West Squares dance group.
Good times for the whole family! Suggested donation, adults/$10, children 6 to 18/$5 (children 5 and under free).
It is not too late to join in to demonstrate your skills related to growing, harvesting, or producing or sell your local vegetables, fruits, or specialty food items, just contact Lee Hallberg at the library by calling 970-533-7600.
