Annual Fall Festival at Teatown Lake Reservation, Oct 16, 2010

Teatown’s Annual Fall Festival

From pumpkin carving to hayrides, families can share time-honored traditions at Teatown’s Annual Fall Festival on the grounds of Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining. This year’s festival, scheduled for October 16 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., keeps the focus on fun while promoting an appreciation for the environment.

Festival-goers can dress a scarecrow, pet the animals from Muscoot Farm, ride a zipline with SavATree, create eco-friendly crafts, and enjoy live music by Joe Duraes, Steve Kirkman, Spuyten Duyvil, Glen Roethel and Montgomery Delaney. They can also visit the Teatown Marketplace, where vendors like Teatown Tea, Tom Cat Bakery and Stuart’s Farm will offer apples, breads, cider and other seasonal treats.

Teatown Lake Reservation is a nonprofit, environmental organization with an 834-acre nature preserve spanning Yorktown, Cortlandt and New Castle, New York. Its children’s Funpass ($20 for members; $22 for non-members) includes admission, festival activities and a hayride. General festival admission is free for members, $10 for non-member adults, and $2 for non-member children. There will be free festival parking with shuttle buses at the IBM parking lot on Route 134, just east of the Taconic Parkway.

All funds raised at the festival will directly benefit Teatown’s environmental education programs. For information or directions, call 914.762.2912, ext. 110, or visit teatown.org.
