Granville Harvest Fair

GRANVILLE – One of the region’s most beloved fall traditions, the Granville Harvest Fair, is set for this weekend.
For three days – Oct. 12-14 – participants can take advantage of vendors, food, arts and crafts, and more, during the 32nd annual event.
From Noble & Cooley Drum Shop and Granville Village School, around the Green and up to the Old Meeting House, the fair offers traditional New England autumnal flair.
For Coralie Stevenson, helping organize the Granville Harvest Fair has become an annual event for the past 25 years. Stevenson is in charge of The Old Meeting House and said even before visitors enter the building there is something for everyone.
“We will have our annual Scarecrow Convention,” said Stevenson, “as well as our tractor show, which kids love.”
Inside there will be a display of hooked rugs made right in Granville, as well as vendors selling handcrafted items.
“We have only handmade and homemade items at the Old Meeting House,” said Stevenson.
Hot apple slices and mulled and cold cider will round out the offerings.
At Noble & Cooley, located on Water Street, the drum shop museum will invite fair goers to take a walk through history.
“We will also have the Granville Quilt and Needlework Guild here for the second year,” said Carol Jones of Noble & Cooley.
Westfield River Brewing Company and Bruiser’s BBQ will have drinks and food, and vendors will offer their wares.
Jones said the Harvest Fair is a great way to introduce people to the rich history of the drum in Granville.
“We enjoy the opportunity to share the history of the factory and offer a variety of vendors and crafters,” said Jones.
Shuttle buses will run from the school up to the Old Meeting House and everywhere in between. Parking is available at the school, meeting house and town hall.
“Every year the fair gets bigger and better,” said Stevenson. “It looks like the weather will be superb and we are hoping for a big turnout and big sales.”
The Granville Harvest Fair is open Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Oct. 13 from 12-5 p.m., and Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
