Food, art and craft lovers are invited to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s fifth annual Woodland Kitchen Harvest Festival Saturday, October 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  This celebration of autumn is held at the NWTC Woodland Kitchen and Business Incubator, located in Hillcrest School, 2030 Calvary Drive in Aurora.    

The festival features local food vendors, an arts and craft market, and exciting activities for the whole family, including a Kids Craft Corner and activity area.  A free tote bag is available for attendees while supplies last.

 “The Harvest Festival keeps getting bigger, which speaks volumes about all of the amazing artisans and food vendors who participate,” said Sally Miller-DeCremer, manager of the NWTC – Niagara Regional Learning Center. “It’s a great community event, and we really do have something for everyone.”

More than 400 people attended Harvest Fest last year.
