harvest fest

The award-winning Harvest Festival returns for a fourth year to Richmond, giving you and your family a chance to cultivate a day of free fall fun!

The annual Harvest Festival kicks off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, and runs through 3 p.m. This event, which features everything from live music to lawn games to even a pie-eating contest, is 100% completely free!

The festival is held at the Harvest Green Model Home Park, 618 Vineyard Hollow Court, in Richmond, but parking can get a little tight if you’re not there early enough. Event organizers are asking the public to park at Travis High School, 11111 Harlem Road in Richmond, and take a shuttle to and from the festival.

The main question at Harvest Festival is, “What can’t you do?!”

Start the day by strolling through the Farmers Market, where you will undoubtedly find some tasty treats.

After filling up, your kids are going to want to go play on a number of the inflatable attractions, or take a stab at the rock climbing wall. There are even sack races taking place during the event!

There’s live music being DJ’ed throughout the day.

Many families use Harvest Festival as an opportunity to take some fall-themed family photos. There are a few nice fall displays that will make for the perfect backdrop.

What else can you expect? Farm tours, balloon artists, face painting, pumpkin decorating and — everyone’s favorite — pet adoptions!

Oh, and there are some very tasty food and drink vendors on hand, including Wylie Street Tacos, Cousins Maine Lobster, Coffee-Q, and more! And if you’re still hungry, there are pie-eating contests — two for adults and one for kids. Winners get a trophy and a $50 gift card!

“Harvest Fest is a great way for people to experience the Harvest Green lifestyle,” said Haley Peck, Marketing Director for Harvest Green. “They will be able to tour the community and our model homes, get to know our residents, take fantastic fall photos for Instagram and Facebook, and have fun celebrating fall with the whole family.”

What’s Harvest Green? Harvest Green is the Houston area’s first farm-centric housing development. Located on 1,300 acres of land, the development includes plenty of open space, lakes and a planned recreation center. The development allows its residents to grow their own food in an optional backyard garden or in the community’s Village Farm. (Some model homes will be available to tour!)

The development also hosts a summer tomato festival and a spring Earth Day event.
