  • Enjoy agricultural activities that include corn shelling and grinding. 
  • Apple cider pressing demonstrations.
  • Savor an abundance of delicious foods from the season’s harvest.
  • Relish the taste of pulled pork, chili, hot dogs, and salads.

Children will especially enjoy:

  • Rides on the Empire State Carousel, the museum you can ride (sponsored by Matt Sohns and family)
  • Historic games and races
  • Rope making
  • Apple bobbing
  • Craft activities for the entire family
  • Nineteenth-century games in the one-room schoolhouse

At noon on Saturday, stop by the Empire State carousel for the dedication of a new carousel plaque honoring New York State musician Pete Seeger. Carousel creator Jerry Holzman will also sign the museum's book detailing the history of the carousel.

On Sunday at 2:00 pm, enjoy a book signing and reading with author Shannon Hayes and her new book Homespun Mom Comes Unraveled and Other Adventures from the Radical Homemaking Frontier.
