The Harvest Festival is dedicated to celebrating the many influences that make up our rich deep East Texas heritage through exhibitors, presenters, displays, and performances all set in our "Living Village" grounds circa 1840-1920. All participants are dressed in period costumes, using period tools, and demonstrating period skills. There will be outstanding shows of both music and dance, and lots of interesting food.
