Coggeshall Harvest Fair this Saturday and Sunday

The Coggeshall Harvest Fair is this weekend on both days September 19 and 20th from 10 - 5 pm.

The Harvest Fair is an annual event which began in 1973 and today attracts up to 5,000 visitors from across Southeastern New England. Offerings at the Fair include quality vendors, traditional competitions, and unique entertainment. At the heart of the Fair are live demonstrations of historic and traditional crafts and skills presented by artisans from across the Northeast. It is this focus on artistry and craftsmanship that sets Coggeshall Farm’s Harvest Fair apart from other events, and makes it the valuable asset to the community it has proven to be for 35 years.
There will be period games and competitions from a frying pan toss, watermelon eating and an apple pie contest. Also on hand will be preserves made from Coggeshall Farm fruit, reprints of historic books and posters form the 18th C and hay and pony rides. Go to for a list of vendors and other events. If you would like to help out and be a volunteer please call 401 253 9062 or email
