The Harvest Moon Festival & Tours Planning Committee is pleased to bring you the 2022 Harvest Moon Festival & Tours: This year, we are adding a day of fun activities to our popular cemetery tours for the first-ever Harvest Moon Festival!

Back by popular demand, there will be two different ways to enjoy the tours: a horse-and-trolley (carriage) tour and a walking tour. We are delighted to work with actors from the Main Street Studio again this year and also to introduce several new scenes into this year’s tour script, which is themed “The Mothers of our Community” and celebrates the roles women have played in Fredonia’s unique history.

The carriage tours will begin at the top of every hour starting at 7pm and ending at 10pm. You will get onto the carriage at Barker Commons after you check in at the Festivals Fredonia table. The route will take you through town as a guide provides facts about Fredonia’s architecture and historical figures. You’ll then enjoy a narrative guided tour through the cemetery. The carriage will bring you back and drop you off at Barker Commons. Total time for tour is about 60 minutes. Please arrive at the Gazebo in Barker Commons at least 10 minutes before your scheduled start time to allow check in.

The walking tour will start 15 minutes after the hour where you will depart Barker Commons with your tour group and you will be guided to the cemetery where your walking tour will begin. After your cemetery tour, your guide will bring you back to Barker Commons Total time for tour is 60-75 minutes. Please arrive at the Gazebo in Barker Commons at least 10 minutes before your scheduled time to allow check in.

We are also very pleased to announce a one time special walking tour with Ivy Rivera Psychic Medium. Ivy will be your guide on a walking tour through the cemetery. This is a one time event happening October 21 starting at 10:30pm. It will depart at the Gazebo. Please arrive 10 minutes before the tour begins.
