Lanark County Harvest Festival - June 23rd deadline to be included in Ottawa Citizen insert

We are looking forward to this year’s Harvest Festival taking place on Sunday, September 10th 2017, at Beckwith Park (1319 9th Line) in Beckwith Township.  As in previous years, the event schedule includes live music, cooking demonstrations, agricultural displays, petting zoo, face painting, a giant air bounce and the Harvest Church Supper. 


NEW! Promotional efforts are being increased this year:

1.      Over 10,000 copies of the Lanark County Harvest Festival full colour event guide will printed and distributed in the Ottawa Citizen’s as an insert in the Food section in August.  

2.      Additionally, a series of “Farmer Profiles” are being posted on social media channels from March 2017 to March 2018, sending the Harvest Festival website link to an estimated 5,000 people each month, year-round.  

3.      A new page has been created on the Harvest Festival website entitled “Farmer profiles” which provides a special highlight to those vendors that have participated in the Harvest Festival since its inception. Profiles to date have been published at

4.      Finally, 10 new event signs have been purchased and will be installed around Lanark County, advertising the Harvest Festival for three weeks prior to the event.

To have your farm included in the Ottawa Citizen insert, we need you to register before June 23rd.

Ongoing promotions include event flyers (now available), radio campaign with Lake 88.1 and Jack FM, the event program, banners and the Harvest Festival Website. We look forward to working with you on this year’s festival. Thank you for your ongoing partnership.
