For those who are unfamiliar, this event celebrates the changing of the seasons and the bounty of our wooded landscapes, and features music, apple butter and cider production, refreshments, a canopy walkway, an active honey bee hive, and children’s activities including a crafts table. There will also be hands-on activities including traditional shake-splitting and a cross-cut saw competition, in addition to a contra dance and guided hikes.

The festival is free to the public and appropriate for all ages. Williams College students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to come. If you are interested in preforming music or have skills relevant to the festival please reach out to forest manager Drew Jones or student-helper Alice-Henry Carnell.

We are excited to see you there!
