Description

Join us in Celebrating the Harvest! Fall is a busy time of year at Old Sturbridge Village. This time of year early 19th-century New Englanders farmers worked tirelessly to harvest corn, potatoes, apples, squash, and other produce from their fields. Families also put time into preserving the harvest by drying, pickling, and sugaring never knowing quite how long the winter would last. As the growing season winds down, come see our gardeners and farmers who are hard at work harvesting and preserving crops, putting fields and gardens to rest, and thinking ahead to the next growing season.

19th-Century Agricultural Fair (October 7-9)

Fall was the time for 19th-century Agricultural Societies to hold a Cattle Show. Many shows also included an Exhibition of Domestic Manufacture. This weekend, we are recreating such a display of vegetables, cheese, knitted stockings, baskets and more. Plan your Agricultural Fair visit. This weekend is sponsored by UniBank.
