Harvest moon
September 16-18, 2021

The Harvest Moon by Longfellow
"It is the Harvest Moon!  On gilded vanes And roofs of villages, on woodland crests And their aerial neighborhoods of nests Deserted, on the curtained window-panes Of rooms where children sleep, on country lanes And harvest-fields, its mystic splendor rests! Gone are the birds that were our summer guests, With the last sheaves return the laboring wains! All things are symbols: the external shows Of Nature have their image in the mind, As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves; The song-birds leave us at the summer's close, Only the empty nests are left behind, And pipings of the quail among the sheave."

Each fall brings a season of discovery in Downtown Farmington - the cooler temperatures, longer shadows, wisps of woodsmoke and the Harvest Moon rising.  Find yourself in our small town celebrating Michigan's most glorious season during the Harvest Moon Celebration.  Plan your weekend with friends or come and make new ones.  Join us outdoors at the Sundquist Pavilion in Riley Park as we say farewell to summer and festively ring in autumn.

Sample harvest food pairings, sip crafted cider or artisan ales, explore fine wines or just enjoy the music during the Beer & Wine Tasting on Thursday.  Friday's flavor is more robust -- a Taste of Downtown and a rockin' sound -- at the Harvest Moon Dance!  New this year, join us on Saturday night for another night of beer, wine, food and live music.
