What is Harvest Faire?
Journey School’s Harvest Faire celebrates the bounty of the land, connects the children and community to the rhythms of nature, and fosters a sense of gratitude in the students.
The biggest event in the Journey school calendar. We are opening our doors to everyone in the inside and outside community. The festival also happens to be a whole lot of fun! In the days leading up to the event, the schoolyard is completely transformed into an old fashioned farmyard, decorated with wheat, flowers, straw bales, vintage signs, and much more. Parents, community members, and staff prepare delicious and healthy foods shared by all.
Typically held at the beginning of November.
Outside on the entire campus.
Kindergarten to 8th grade, alumni, family and friends, teachers and the local community. Each class is responsible for hosting a particular activity booth, as parents and students rotate working in them surrounded by crafts, activities, and music.
