After an absence last year due to COVID-19, Halifax Harvest Days will return in October.
The event is held at the 4-H Rural Life Center located at 13763 Highway 903 outside Halifax.
Halifax County government and the Halifax County Cooperative Extension Service have set the dates for the event on October 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and October 9 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The October 8 slot is specifically for fourth- and fifth-grade students whether they attend the public school system, a charter school, private school, or are homeschooled.
The October 9 slot is for the public.
“We are looking forward to the return of Halifax County Harvest Days after having to cancel our 2020 event,” said Halifax County Cooperative Extension Director Beth Burchell. “This festival is a great opportunity for our community to join together to showcase the agricultural and cultural heritage of our county. There are exhibits and events for everyone young and old to enjoy.”
The event will celebrate the world of agriculture, featuring farm animals, a horse show, antique tractors, hay wagon rides, the agricultural museum, and educational exhibits, as well as entertainment.
Local vendors will be selling homemade food, arts, and crafts.
Harvest Days will end with two hours of live music from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. by the Cat5 Band, which is being presented by Visit Halifax.
Some exhibits may end prior to the start of the final band performance.
Food, arts, and crafts vendors are still being accepted with a reasonable vendor fee.
