Adirondack Harvest Festival returns Sept. 24, vendors and volunteers needed


Festival enthusiasts are encouraged to save the date for this year’s Adirondack Harvest Festival which will return to its traditional, one-day, in-person format at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport, NY on Saturday, September 24, 2022. The crowd-pleasing, family-friendly event is free and will follow the same format as past festivals. This year’s festival will feature a large farmers’ market, local food trucks, a beer tent, live music, demonstrations and talks, plenty of kids’ activities, farm animals, and much more.
Adirondack Harvest Festival organizers are actively seeking event sponsors, vendors, speakers and volunteers to make this community event possible a reality for generations to come. Those who wish to lend a hand at any of the above roles are encouraged to read more below.

The Adirondack Harvest Festival was created in 2016 in order to celebrate local farms and food, support the local economy, and give community members experiences that help all to learn and grow together. It is a day designed to bring farms, local businesses, and the community together. The event also gives regional farms an opportunity to showcase their work, and community members a chance to learn something new, try new foods, and meet the makers.

Much like other gatherings and events, the Adirondack Harvest Festival has had to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the past two years, the Adirondack Harvest Festival took on a different shape with an online and self-guided festival in 2020, and an “Open Farm Week” with an entire week of many smaller events across the Adirondacks in 2021. For 2022, appropriate COVID-19 precautions will be taken to create a fun and safe event for everyone involved.
