HAMPTON’S HARVEST FESTIVAL RETURNS!
After a two-year pandemic hiatus, Hampton will again have its fall celebration.
Fletcher Memorial Library, assisted by the Town of Hampton, hosts The Hampton Harvest Festival, September 10, 10 am- 3 p.m., on Main Street, the lawn between the Community Center and the Town Hall at 164 Main Street. The festival will feature exclusively locally grown and handmade products from the Town of Hampton.
The offerings will include fresh produce, maple syrup products, breads and eggs from local farms, and nature photography, hand-knit toys, dried flower bouquets, T-shirts and more from Hampton artisans.
The Hampton Fire Company will be serving hot dogs and hamburgers, while the library will hold a bake sale and a silent auction. Audubon Trail Wood, Friends of Goodwin Forest and the Hampton Antiquarian and Historical Society will be on hand to discuss their programs, while the Gazette will have the annual calendar, featuring local artists, available for sale.
There will be farm animals on display for the children, as well as face painting, sack races and corn-hole, plus kid-friendly food.
Associated events throughout the day include a tour of the town's new Hammond Hill/Little River property presented by the Hampton Conservation Commission, and a dinnertime chicken barbecue at the Hampton Congregational Church.
