Fall may not have officially arrived yet, but Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead is embracing the season of pumpkin brews, brisk breezes and foliage by hosting its 36th annual Fall Festival and Craft Show on Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th. Taking place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days, the event will feature a wide variety of family-friendly activities that all ages will appreciate.

"The annual Fall Festival and Craft Show at Hallockville has been a great tradition on the North Fork for 36 years," shared Beth Motschenbacher, Assistant Director. "Each year visitors of all ages enjoy the authentic rural atmosphere, the traditional folk arts and crafts and families especially love the value of the admission fee: one price includes hayrides, farm animal displays, historic house tours, a children's play area and a whole lot more."

This is one of the most important happenings of the year for the Museum Farm. "Hallockville Museum Farm is a not-for-profit and this is our largest fundraiser of the year, with admissions proceeds going directly into preserving the 250 year old property and buildings," explained Motschenbacher.

Goings-on will include craft demonstrations and displays - like rug hooking, basketweaving, quilting, woodcarving, decoy carving, woodworking, and more, a showcase of locally made goods from over 50 craft and artisan vendors, a Tractor Pull and Show by LI Antique Power Association, live music by Eastbound Freight Bluegrass Band, a Model Railroad from Railroad Museum of LI, guided museum tours of the 1765 Homestead, 1931 Cichanowicz Farmhouse and Homestead Barn, a 250th anniversary special exhibit and historic transportation exhibit, a livestock display with farm animals including goats, horses, donkeys, cows and other favorites, local bites and sips and more.

"The Fall Festival is also a great venue to see all your favorite local vendors, performers and craftspeople in one place," she said. "Eastbound Freight Bluegrass band will be playing both days, local crafts guilds including the woodcarvers, basketweavers, quilters, weavers and ruggers will be here, and local food and beverage trucks including Greenport Harbor Brewing, Pizza Rita, and Eat Me Drink me will be serving their goods."

Admission to the Fall Festival and Craft Show is $8 for adults (ages 13-years-old and up), $5 for ages five-years-old to 12-years-old, free for ages four and under, and $20 for a group of two adults with two children.

Proceeds from the event funds education programs, historic restoration, special exhibits, maintenance of Hallockville Museum Farm's 19 historic buildings - situated on 28 acres of preserved land, farm animals and more.

Hallockville Museum Farm is located at 6038 Sound Avenue in Riverhead. For more information, call 631-298-5292 or visit www.hallockville.com.
