Harvest festivals are traditionally held on or near the Sunday of the Harvest Moon. This full moon occurs closest to the autumn equinox (about September 23). In two years out of three, the Harvest moon comes in September, but in some years in occurs in October. The word harvest is from the Old English word “haerfest”, meaning autumn. It came to refer to the season for reaping and gathering grain and other grown products.
Here in the Jupiter/Tequesta area during harvest season the Town of Jupiter organizes Harvest Fest. This year it is on Saturday, October 5, 2013 and is located under the Indiantown Road Bridge at US 1 at the Riverwalk Events Plaza from 1:00pm – 6:00pm. Fun for the entire family! This FREE event will feature craft vendors, country line dancing, live music, a donut eating contest, food vendors offering seasonal treats, beer and wine, a dunk tank, a pumpkin patch, free carnival games for kids, a petting zoo, and much more!
