Washington Harvest Festival – A Favorite Town Tradition

Washington Harvest Festival 2022

An example of our town at its best – the Washington Harvest Festival brings together amazing people, organizations, and local businesses for celebration of community, and good ol’ fun. From 11th generation Washingtonians, to the most recent arrivals in town, residents from down the road, and visitors from afar – everyone came together on a sunny autumn day amongst the splendid turning foliage to enjoy food, drink, music, and family fun. Thank you to Washington Parks & Rec and Washington Business Association for organizing this favorite annual event.

Here’s a glimpse of this year’s 5th Annual Harvest Festival… and stay tuned for next year!
