2019 Adirondack Harvest Festival at Wesport


This is one of our favorite Fall Festivals in Essex County. Last year we spent a glorious afternoon stocking up on some of the best tasting veggies we’ve had in the North Country, and loaded up on potatoes which we stored in the fridge and lasted us well into February.


There are numerous vendors, from artisanal spirit makers, flower stands, a HUGE farmers’ market, agricultural demonstrations, live music with a festive beer tent featuring local breweries, an antique tractor display, a horse show and mouth-watering goodies from numerous food trucks. Free admission! The event goes from 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Click here for more details.
