This year's Harvest Festival will celebrate the agricultural traditions at Fort Ross. For our bicentennial Harvest Festival, we will have a special interpretive focus on the Fort Ross windmill, which is being reconstructed at Fort Ross thanks to a generous gift from Renova's Links of Times.
During the morning, help us gather the harvest in our orchard. At 1 o'clock join us at the windmill for an interpretive tour. Then, in the afternoon, within the walls of the fort, join us where we will be juicing, baking, making crafts, learning about 19th century agricultural efforts at Settlement Ross, and the group “Kedry” will share traditional Russian song and dance!
The full-size Russian-style windmill was built by artisan craftsmen in Russia who will travel to Fort Ross to oversee its installation in September.
