Round up your family and join Mayor Cahn, Cherry Hill Township Council, Cherry Hill Police Department and Cherry Hill Fire Department for Harvest Festival featuring Fire & Life Safety Day on Sunday, October 16, from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. This annual event is a result of a partnership between Cherry Hill Township, Cherry Hill Police Department and Cherry Hill Fire Department aimed at engaging and informing the community. Located, at Croft Farm (100 Bortons Mill Road, Cherry Hill, NJ 08034), rain or shine, Harvest Festival attendees will celebrate their community spirit by sampling a variety of “tricks” and “treats” from the Cherry Hill area.
This year's event is sponsored by Kennedy Health System, with the support of Republic Bank, Springdale Farms, International Sports & Skating Centre and Wag N Wash.
Built in 1779, Croft Farm was once a working mill, farm and stop on the Underground Railroad. This historic landmark has played an important role in Southern New Jersey for more than 300 years. In 1995, the township converted the tractor barn into a 240-seat performance venue with concert-worthy acoustics. Residents and visitors can also take advantage of the 80 acres of preserved land at Croft including nature trails, which in 2011, were designated as National Recreation Trails by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior. During Harvest Festival, attendees are encouraged to visit the Croft Farm Arts Center where there will be open gallery hours for the Fall Into the Arts photography show. This show is hosted by the Cherry Hill Arts Board and sponsored by Kennedy Health and Wag N Wash. All photographs are available for purchase.
This event is free and open to everyone. Crafts and food are available for purchase. More information is available by contacting the Recreation Department at 856-488-7868 or Events@CHTownship.com.
