Harvest Farm Festival

What if you could have the best of both worlds? What if you could get all the enchantment of the fall while helping to change lives?
At Harvest Farm Fall Festival that is exactly what attendees do. Proceeds from the Festival directly support the New Life Program (NLP) at Harvest Farm. An outreach of Denver Rescue Mission, Harvest Farm is a 100-acre working farm located in Wellington, CO. The Farm accommodates up to 72 men recovering from chronic homelessness and addiction and helps return them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
For the past 17 years, families from near and wide come to our Festival to have a true fall farm experience and support the men in our NLP. With the help of Fall Festival attendees and donors over the years we’ve been able to help 450 men in our program graduate.
When you arrive at the Farm you’ll be greeted by all things fall. Scattered throughout the acres of farm land is a 10-acre corn maze, pig races, pumpkin picking station, corn cannons, petting zoo, wagon rides and much, much more. To top it off, the Farm makes some of the best kettle corn in all of Northern Colorado (some would even say it puts the pumpkin spice latte to shame with it’s out of this world flavors.)
Throughout the month of October there are also featured attractions that add even more sparkle and pizazz to the Festival. For the first time ever we are having a puppy yoga class in our barn opening weekend. Who doesn’t want to do some yoga with 8 to 12 month old puppies? Alongside puppy yoga, we also have Colorado Weekend. Everyone who wears Colorado gear will get $2 off one admission.
Weekends in October (10/4 – 10/27)
Fridays & Saturdays: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Sundays: 1 – 6 p.m.
