On Saturday, Oct. 5, the Living Local Harvest Festival kicks into full swing with day-long events at the Agricultural Hall in West Tisbury. The festival is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then from 6 to 10 p.m. is the community potluck with a dance featuring music by the Flying Elbows.

The festival features speakers and talks on how to raise chickens, live sustainably, the journey of trash (no, it doesn’t magically evaporate after it is taken to the dump) and creating healthy snacks for kids. There is also plenty of music, locally grown and prepared food, kids events (touché, trebuchet), tree-side chats and, as a side bonus, the Antique Power Show (that’s cars for those out of the loop) and the Fall Fuzzy Horse Show.

Admission is free.
