New Moon Harvest Festival

What: 1st Annual New Moon Harvest Festival
When: Sunday, September 25th, 2022, 1 pm – 7 pm
Where: 6 Depot St Suite 104, Washingtonville, NY 10992

Traditionally, new moon celebrations were about setting positive intentions for the things you want to manifest in life, while harvest festivals were about giving thanks for the bounty of harvest time. At the 1st annual New Moon Harvest Festival, we will do both!

Come out and enjoy the bounty of the Hudson Valley with:

  • Fresh local food
  • Artisan shops
  • Music
  • Fun Activities like making succulent pumpkins, setting positive intentions for your life and community at our wishing well, making kindness rocks for our kindness garden, and more!
