Hayfest Festival at Jackson Homestead
Our annual Hayfest, held this year on Sunday, October 6, 2019 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Jackson Homestead, is a free, family-friendly outdoor festival featuring 19th-century crafts.
Learn through hands-on activities how Newton families lived in the 1800s. Try your hand at butter making, cider pressing, candle dipping, and weaving. Jump into a burlap sack for a race or play the hoop-tossing game of graces.
Enjoy a day of old-fashioned fun. This event is free and fun for the whole family.
