  • Fall Harvest Festival Weekends
    Lake Metroparks Farmpark
    3 Weekends of Fall Fun!

    September 22nd & 23rd: Wool and Tractor Weekend

    Lake Metroparks Farmpark continues a tradition of celebrating the harvest season with the Wool Jamboree & Antique Tractor Show!

    Sheep were shorn of their winter coats in the spring to obtain wool. This lustrous fiber is used to make many wonderful products from clothing to blankets. Learn how to spin and weave and make felt. Watch our border collie herd sheep and meet fiber-producing sheep.

    Tractors have been used throughout the years for use in the harvest. See and hear antique tractors as the tractors parade through the park and talk with their owners about the restoration process.

    Visitors may also enjoy our Showman's Circle area, including a farm-themed playground and covered shelter for live animal demonstrations.

    Little farmers can pedal their way on mini tractors through the farm maze on the Pedal Tractor Overlook. They can navigate the hay maze and play in the kid's areas. The whole family can explore the three-acre corn maze. Enjoy harvest-themed crafts and more.

    Regular Farmpark admission applies. Click here for rates, memberships and directions.

    September 29th & 30th : Apple and Cider Weekend

    Lake Metroparks Farmpark continues a tradition of celebrating the harvest season with a weekend all about apples! Get a taste of apple cider, sample a variety of apples and help grind apples and press cider. Apple slushies are available at the Apple Cider Bar.

Find out if a twist on age-old advice can restore order to the sleep-deprived barnyard. Plays will be held at 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 am. Enjoy crafts and take-home activities throughout the morning.
