Every year, thousands of visitors flock to this Festival at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum in the village of Dunvegan. This rural community comes together to help put on an amazing day of pioneer harvest demonstrations, a horse-drawn carriage parade, live music, pioneer craft demonstrators and a harvest tent filled with preserves, local produce, baking and heritage plants. There is something for all ages, from the children’s games and petting zoo, to taking in a threshing demonstration and walk through the 1860s Star Inn and other historic buildings. There is something different every year!

Kind words from visitors to the Harvest Fall Festival...

"I just wanted to let the organizers of the Harvest Festival know how impressed we were with our visit yesterday. Everything was so well organized and best of all as authentic as possible. The parade (not usually a fan of parades) was right up there with the best.  The harvesting demonstrations really added to my understanding of how we got to today...Thank you for a value packed enjoyable outing and an introduction to Dunvegan."

Allan Knights, Bourget

 

"It was a Sunday outing to be enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds -- you just can't help but get into the mood for Thanksgiving now -- what a treat!
Looking forward to returning again next year."
