The Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to present one of the largest fall celebrations in the state, Harvest Fest, sponsored by local area businesses.

The 34th annual festival is an action-packed, two-day spectacular with activities for all ages taking place on Saturday, September 24, and Sunday, September 25. Both days will feature the annual art and craft fair in Deacon Mills Park, Town Square, and Playground Park, all located in the heart of this charming lake community. 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! Local restaurants and nonprofits will be serving up a wide variety of delicious treats and dishes throughout both days in the food court. Live entertainment will perform on the main stage at the corner of Mill and Hill Streets, in Deacon Mills Park, and the corner of Water and Mill Streets.

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. This year, the city of Green Lake will be celebrating its 175th anniversary, displaying a themed historical parade to remember!

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

Harvest Fest is an event the whole family can enjoy for hours on end! For more information, go to visitgreenlake.com or call the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce at (920) 294-3231.
