18th Century Harvest Dinner!

October 14th 3p.m. – 7 p.m.

In the 18th Century, Autumn was the time of year where the harvest was brought in, and there was finally some freedom from the labors of farm life. Harvest festivals come from traditions where the community gathered to share in the bounty of their labor. We invite you to join us in honoring that tradition at Ethan Allen’s Homestead in Burlington, VT.
