Autumn Harvest Festival
The Autumn Harvest Festival held each fall in Monroe County is an authentic local country festival. It occurs annually on the last weekend of September— which is this coming weekend! The best of locally grown produce and field crops will be on display and competing for prizes, as will hand-made quilts and home-canned goods. Art work and local crafts will be on display and available for purchase at the fair. Local bands including the Hans Creek String Band and The Turtle Creek Band will be playing music and there will be fun activities for all ages, including adult and kiddie pedal pulls, horseshoe pitching contest and an Oreo stacking contest. A flea market will be set up in a nearby field for those who love to browse for unexpected treasures. The festival is held at the WVU Extension Farm on Willow Bend Road, right outside Union. This year’s Autumn Harvest Festival will be Saturday, September 25 from 9:00-4:00 and Sunday, September 26th from 12:30-4:00. Details are posted in this week’s Monroe Watchman. Admission is free. See you there!
