Harvest & Heritage Days
October 10 @ 10:00 am - October 11 @ 5:00 pm
With events being canceled all over the area, The Greater Honesdale Partnership is proud to announce Harvest & Heritage Days Saturday, October 10th, and Sunday, October 11th is on! Sponsored by President Circle sponsors, Dime Bank, Honesdale National Bank and Wayne Bank, Platinum sponsor, the Fraternal Order of Eagles #1858, and Bronze Sponsor, Cribbs Bed & Breakfast.
Harvest and Heritage Days may look a little different this year but the Events Committee has guaranteed there is still plenty to do while visiting Honesdale’s thriving downtown. Start your morning wandering local boutique shops, tasting fine olive oils and balsamic vinegar, and hunting upscale consignment furniture and couture clothing stores. Take the kids for a blacksmith demonstration located at R3 Hardware and a chainsaw woodcarver at Scarfalloto’s Townhouse Diner Restaurant. Hayrides will be available from 11-4 PM. Hayride tickets will only be sold online and timed for social distancing. The hayride will be available for groups of 5 or 10. So get your group together and reserve your private ride. You can meet the wagon on Saturday and Sunday at the corners of Main and 7th Streets. All you need is a copy of the ticket on your phone. Tickets can be purchased up to 15 minutes before your ride.
SATURDAY: The Secret Reasons 12:30 Finders Keepers – Brad Commeau, 1:00 PM Fred Miller Pavilion, Tim Theobald, 1:00 HNB, Veronica Ann, 2:30 PM Fred Miller Pavilion
SUNDAY: Randy Light, 11:30 AM HNB, Bob Tellefsen, 11:30 AM Fred Miller Pavilion, Alexander Churchill 1:00 PM HNB, Kathy Geary, 2:00 PM Fred Miller Pavilion, Owen Walsh, 1:00 PM Finders Keepers, and The Johnson Trio, 3:30 PM Finders Keepers.
Then for a thrilling evening, a Ghost Tour has been added with 5 tours per evening starting at 5:00 PM. You’ll enjoy a guided 40-minute walking tour with a spooky “tell-all” of Honesdale’s horrific untold stories. This is a timed ticket event for groups of 16 or less. So, get your tickets soon at www.visithonesdalepa.com because this will certainly sell out.
Don’t forget to take a trip to The Stourbridge Line’s Pumpkin Patch Express. The 2-hour round trip train excursion is departing from Honesdale. There will be free pumpkins for children.
Other fun things happening is Gather’s Backyard Bazaar on Saturday, Oct 10th from 12- 5 in the Maude Alley backyard, Finders Keepers Handbag Tent Sale with brand new bags at 20% OFF, Arts for Him and Her Too tent sale, and Grace Episcopal Church’s Holiday OUTDOOR Extravaganza on October 10th from 9 AM to 2 PM at the 200 Block of Ninth Street.
Mark your calendars for this great weekend and do not forget to sign up online for the hayride and the Ghost Tour!
