Shows & Events

Ardenwood Historic Farm Harvest Festival
It's October and time for harvest festivals. The Ardenwood Historic Farm Harvest Festival is one of my favorites. You can harvest corn, drink fresh-squeezed apple cider, and dance to hoe-down music, along with many other harvest season activities. Visit Joe Perry's pumpkin patch and organic produce stand for some great produce.

It's happening October 14 to 15, Ardenwood Historic Farm, 34600 Ardenwood Boulevard, Fremont. For information call 510-791-4196 or visit the Web site at
