The Harvest Moon Cemetery Tour Planning Committee is currently planning the 2021 festival in hopes that it will be in person this year. Please stay tuned for more information on this festival as time gets closer. In the meantime, please feel free to read what we did last year.
The Harvest Moon Cemetery Tour Planning Committee is pleased to bring you something new for 2020: The Harvest Moon Virtual Cemetery Tour!
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are unable to offer our traditional horse-and-trolley tours this fall, but we wanted to make sure that there was still a way for our loyal supporters to experience the haunted history of Fredonia. In collaboration with the Special Collections & Archives Division of Daniel A. Reed Library at SUNY Fredonia, we have put together a virtual walking tour that can be found by clicking the button below.
The virtual tour uses web-based map software, combined with photographs, videos, and narrative text, to provide a unique version of our usual in-person tour that can be experienced safely in your own home through your favorite browser or even on a socially-distanced walk with your household through historic Fredonia in the autumn. Unlike the in-person event, this virtual event will be available through the fall season for you to experience at your own pace, and best of all, there is no cost to access the virtual tour. The link will be live on Friday, October 16, when the in-person event would have taken place — so be sure to check the Festivals Fredonia website this weekend!
We encourage you to support Festivals Fredonia directly through shopping in our web store for Festivals Fredonia merchandise and 50/50 raffle tickets, and you can also make donations and purchase festival sponsorships in the store as well. These events, even the virtual ones, cannot happen without your support, your continued interest, and the passion for the community that Fredonia is known for. We couldn’t do it without you! Although the events of 2020 left us without the opportunity to bring so many new things to the in-person event as we had originally planned, we remain hopeful that 2021 will allow us to bring some Halloween fun to downtown Fredonia.
Thank you for your continued support of the Harvest Moon Cemetery Tours and Festivals Fredonia, and we hope to see you next year. Happy Halloween!
