Nothing puts us right smack into the heart of the season like an autumn festival – and over the next few weeks there are two different events that will ease you out of summer and land you square in the lap of fall – The Hungry Hollow Music Festival and Green Meadow Waldorf School’s annual Fall Fair.
Saturday, September 24th, 10 am – 6 pm.
The Hungry Hollow Family Music Festival brings great music, organic food, and fun activities for children to our campus on Saturday, September 24th, from 10 am until 6 pm. Located at the Fellowship Community – 241 Hungry Hollow Road in Chestnut Ridge, NY 10977, Nature Place friends and families are invited to join in for a day of listening and dancing to good music – the Chapin Sisters, John McDowell and Mama Tongue, Walking Shapes, and more.
Saturday, October 1st, 10 am – 5 pm
The smell of hay from the wagon ride mixes with the sweet tang of apple cider, newly fallen leaves of gold, orange, and red dapple the ground in front of you, music is heard louder as you turn the corner, and on every side you pass vendors tending beautiful booths and selling handmade crafts, toys, and clothing. With a pang, you realize it must have been early morning when you last ate….and then a waft of smoke from the grill drifts past your nose, and you notice the bounty of other good-looking, organic food besides…crises averted, lunch will be had. Walking toward the grill you pass pumpkins being carved into jack-o-lanterns, a puppet show for young children, cider pressing (that’s us! Stop by and say hi), candle-dipping, treasure hunts, and innumerable other games, tricks, and activities for children and adults alike.
