It is with much sadness, we made the decision to cancel the 2021 Fall Harvest Festival at Newlin Grist Mill.
Like many of you, our staff have been anticipating the return of this event all year. While the decision was not made lightly, circumstances beyond our control make it the responsible decision. We are still recovering from the flooding and currently face a shortage of staff and volunteers, and some demonstrators are choosing not to attend. The COVID transmission risk remains high in our area and the health of our staff, volunteers, demonstrators, and community is a priority. While the event is outdoors, attendees must all travel on shuttle buses to and from the festival.
We hope that our community understand this difficult decision and will join us for an even better event next year. We are planning a food-themed event!
