Midwest Times - - THE EDGE -

Car­namah is gear­ing up to host its first an­nual Har­vest Fes­ti­val this week­end.

The event is a cel­e­bra­tion of all things Car­namah, with a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties and at­trac­tions for all ages held across Fri­day and Satur­day.

The fes­tiv­i­ties kick off at 6pm on Fri­day with the free Un­der the Stars event at the his­toric Macpher­son Homestead. At­ten­dees will en­joy world-class stargaz­ing while lis­ten­ing to Abo­rig­i­nal as­tron­omy sto­ries set to a back­ing track of live lo­cal mu­sic and opera.

The event will also cel­e­brate the launch of the North Mid­lands Stargaz­ing Group. Bring your own pic­nic or buy din­ner on site.

Satur­day will see Macpher­son Street closed off and the fes­ti­val will be­gin in earnest at noon.

Among the at­trac­tions will be live mu­sic and a vin­tage car and trac­tor show.

Mar­kets will show­case lo­cal home­made pre­serves, arts, crafts, jew­ellery, books, art­work, an­tiques, vin­tage cloth­ing and more.

A free ex­hi­bi­tion at the Bank Gallery Space will dis­play a col­lec­tion of paint­ings by Di Tay­lor of lo­cal bushranger Frank Thomas.

The Car­namah Har­vest Fes­ti­val is co-or­di­nated by the North Mid­lands Project, the North Mid­lands Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety and the Car­namah His­toric So­ci­ety and Mu­seum.
