The second annual Wildcliff Harvest Festival Fundraiser takes place on Saturday, October 13, from noon to 4 p.m. at Wildcliff, a Gothic Revival manor house in New Rochelle. The event includes a petting zoo, apple cider, donuts, arts and crafts for kids, live entertainment, local artisans and fall harvest food.

The Wildcliff Harvest Festival Fundraiser was created in 2011 to bring the New Rochelle community together and raise awareness for the Wildcliff renovation project. All proceeds will benefit Jen’s Community at Wildcliff (JCW). “The bones of our mission are to preserve the legacy of Wildcliff and help people make positive changes for themselves through engagement with nature,” says JCW Kerrilee Hunter. “We’ll reach that goal through a nature-based preschool, community programs involving all ages, and sustainability education.”

Visitors to the Harvest Festival are invited to bring a blanket to relax on during the live entertainment. The event is open to the public, with a rain date of Saturday, October 20. Entry fees are $5 per person, with a $25 maximum per family.

Wildcliff is located at 44 Wildcliff Rd, in New Rochelle, adjacent to Hudson Park. For more information visit JensCommunityAtWildcliff.org.
