Green Lake Harvest Fest, by Dusty Walker, Former Executive Director of the Green Lake Area Chamber of Commerce

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year in Green Lake, and the Green Lake Harvest Festival is a big reason why. Harvest Fest has been in Green Lake three decades now, and brings thousands upon thousands of guests into “little” Green Lake. Expect to find over one hundred local crafters and artists selling their wares, local farmers at an ever-expanding market, restaurants selling their signature dishes on the street, hundreds of classic cars on display, family activities and plenty of live entertainment. It seems every year the activities get bigger and better. As a longtime resident of the community, it always puts a smile on my face to see so many happy people in town. Each year I bump into old friends and make a few new ones. We are lucky to live in a community where our local residents and business owners are so willing to work together to make this huge event a success. I’m already looking forward to it.
