Be a Harvestfest Champion at the Pies, Pickles & Preserves Contest

Hey listen, we just went to the Topsfield Fair, and it was awesome and everything, but it ain’t got nothin on the upcoming Great Harvestfest Pies, Pickles & Preserves Contest.  Scheduled to take place in Dock Square at Harvestfest, this contest is going to be some tasty good fun.

Register online HERE or show up with your pride & joy (not your kid, your pie, pickles, or preserves) by noon on Harvestfest. You may walk away with the Best of Harvestfest apron! Or not. But either way, you will have a good time, and that is worth something.

 

Be a Part of Harvestfest!

Harvestfest Wristbands are Here!

Donate $2 to support Harvestfest and get a wristband. Wear it proudly, even at night. Because it glows in the dark.

We did the math, which was hard, and if even a small percentage of Rockporters buy a wristband, Harvestfest will go a long way toward being funded by our own community. Harvestfest is for the people, by the people, and the people need to wear a wristband to show their support.  Also, it glows in the dark. Did we mention that?

Wristbands available through 10/13 at Brothers’ Brew, The Fudgery, and at the Rockport Farmers Market. One last thing, If you wear a wristband the day of Harvestfest, word on the street is that you will receive 10% off at the Rockport Exchange merchandise booth.

Volunteer to help Reduce and Recycle at Harvestfest

From Sharon Kishida, the Harvestfest ZWI coordinator:

This year’s Harvest Fest, as in years past, is intent on minimizing the amount of trash we generate.  To that end, we are hoping to enlist a volunteer corps to help make this possible.

Volunteers will:

  • help the public sort their recyclables, compostables and trash into designated containers (training provided);
  • switch out recycling and trash bags, compost containers once full
  • collect recyclables and compostables from designated bins;
  • get a free T-shirt for a minimum of two hours work
  • measure results
  • have fun and enjoy the festival while reducing waste and slowing climate change!  🙂

Volunteers are needed starting at 9am through 6pm for consolidation. We are looking for volunteers ideally able to work three hour shifts.   You can work alone or in a team or we can put you in a team, so you won’t be alone!

Please forward, post, and share widely! This opportunity is open to groups, students, clubs, scout troops, teams, families, individuals, adults, students…   

 Thank you! We could not run this valuable program without volunteers!  Together, we make a difference!
