When Wisconsin welcomes a bountiful harvest each fall, festivals celebrating the state’s rich farming heritage also sprout up across the state. Locally, one of the largest is Green Lake’s Harvest Fest, organized by the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and supported by local organizations and businesses.

The 33rd annual festival is an action-packed, two-day spectacular with activities for all ages taking place on Saturday, September 25, and Sunday, September 26. Both days will feature the annual art and craft fair in Deacon Mills and Playground Park, as well as on Town Square’s lawn. The fair features nearly 100 local and regional vendors with their wares—perfect for finding something special for yourself, loved one, or even early Christmas gifts!

A farmer’s market showcases the reason for the season with vegetables, fruits, jarred foods, flowers, pumpkins, baked goods, and much more! The Taste of Green Lake food vendors will be selling a wide variety of delicious treats and dishes throughout both days.

Live entertainment will perform on both days in Deacon Mills Park, the corner of Mill and Hill Street, and Playground Park.

On Saturday at 4:00 p.m. sharp, the Harvest Fest Parade, including many colorful floats, high school bands, local area organizations, businesses, and more, will begin on South Street and head down to Mill Street, displaying a parade to remember!

Sunday’s main event is the Jack Taylor Memorial Car Show, which is perfect for fans of antique and classic vehicles. Hundreds of cars will take over Hill Street and the fairgrounds as one of the area’s largest fall car shows showcases auto ingenuity from bygone eras.
