The Lyndon House Arts Center are hosting this year's Harvest Festival on Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Lyndon House Arts Center. The Harvest Festival is offered every other year in the Fall.
This event is open to all elementary students in Northeast Georgia. Included are arts and crafts, traditions and histories of the 1800 – 1900’s, using the Ware-Lyndon Historic House Museum as our inspiration. Included will be demonstrations of what life was like in this period including candle making, letter press, blacksmithing, wool spinning and more. Our partners, Sandy Creek Nature Center and UGA Extension will bring animals to visit with and we have special guest story tellers, musicians and a large diesel powered toy train display this year.
The Harvest Festival is an excellent way for students to experience first-hand some of Georgia's history. We continue to provide this festival free of charge because we believe it is important for the youth of today to have a hands-on opportunity to learn about local history and traditions.
