Harvest Fest is kicked off each year the night before with the Little Miss Walden Contest at 5:30pm in Municipal Square (in case of rain will be held on the 3rd Floor of the Municipal Building) followed by a FREE Family Dance from 7-10pm at the John Howland Youth Center in Wooster Grove.
Harvest Fest itself is a full day of action-packed events, shopping, and food for the whole family. Located in the Municipal Square of Walden in the beautiful Hudson Valley, New York. And admission is always COMPLETELY FREE !
Waldens Harvest Fest began in 1986 as a simple harvest celebration; now over 1,000 visitors and over 100 vendors attend the one-day event, traveling from neighboring states to experience the extraordinary variety of Waldens culture and entertainment.
The Harvest Fest is produced by the Village of Walden and the Walden Community Council. Festival proceeds are used by the Walden Community Council to support community events and other local non-profit organizations.
