harriton fest

The 26th Annual Harriton Plantation Fair is scheduled for Saturday, September 24th, 10am to 4pm (rain or shine). This major event in Lower Merion Township features crafts, antiques, sheep herding, pony rides, historic house tours, childrens’ games, muskets and soldiers, blacksmiths, stone carvers, cabinetmakers, spinners, skep [beehive] weavers, Bluegrass music, falconry and other birds of prey, and much more.  The Fair also features the Harriton Attic Treasures Booth, which is the best flea market on the Main Line, the Harriton Farm stand featuring flowers and organic produce (some of which is from the Harriton garden).  The Farm Stand is sponsored again this year by our friends at Whole Foods Markets.   Lapps Country Market will be roasting chickens and ribs for lunch.  The historic 1704 house will be open for tours during the day. Lots to do – you can even sign up to participate in the two-man saw races!  Don’t miss the day!

All of these activities and your contributions help to assure Harriton’s continued operation as an historic site.  Call  610 525 0201 for further information.
