Experience the Annual York Harvest Fest…
Date: October 19 & 20, 2013
Location: York Village and York Beach
Just 25 minutes south of Kennebunkport is the town of York, hosting the Annual Harvestfest & Kidfest. The festivities start with the Annual Sidewalk Sales at Short Sands York Beach on October 19 – 20, where the stores display their end of seasons sale merchandise on the sidewalks.
One of the most popular attractions of the Harvestfest Celebration is the food! The variety of foods available at Harvestfest is endless and is available all weekend. From the delicious to the unique there are foods to suit everybody’s taste from festival favorites like Kettle Korn, bloomin’ onions and fried dough, to traditional fall treats like apple crisp and fresh pies.
Of course the famous ox roast will take place near the village green. The fires for roasting are lit the night before under an ox split and the beans are lowered into the ground in giant pots for a traditional taste.
This year the Kidsfest will also take place both days during Harvestfest and will include kids games, crafts, special entertainment and Pumpkin Stroll on Saturday night.
