The air has become cooler and the kids are back in school. That means that the Holliston Historical Society Harvest Fair is coming soon!  Each year new and returning vendors congregate on the beautiful grounds of the Historical Society to showcase their numerous handmade crafts, culinary items, antiques and collectables. This year will be no exception.

Crafts include, cutting boards, clocks, sweaters ,gloves, porcelain food graters, signs, wreaths, vintage and garden items, canollis, honey products, jams, fudge and candies, hummus, vegan baked goods, fine arts, paintings, jewelry, hot sauce, stained glass creations, jerky, baby items, candles, fall and winter holiday items, a henna booth……….the list goes on.

Children will enjoy the bouncy house, having their faces painted and becoming acquainted with the live farm animals. There will be a silent auction table featuring bargains on goods and services from area merchants, vendor items etc.

Lunch and beverages will be available for purchase in the barn, where there will also be a bake table and our famous Historical Society apple pies for sale.

The Asa Whiting House will be opened from 11:30am to 3:00pm and members of the collection committee will be available to answer questions.  A new display is being worked on showcasing “Inventions from Holliston”

Bring your family, friends, dog, appetite and curiosity. See you at the Fair!  

There are still a few spaces available for vendors. Please contact Bea Hait at 508-429-3564 for further information.
