Milton Harvest Festival
Milton, PA 17847
Region: Valleys of the Susquehanna
When the weather starts getting cooler and football season kicks off, the Harvest Festival is right around the corner. The Milton Harvest Festival is a community tradition that stretches over a one-week span. In 1977, the Festival’s inaugural year, it was only a three-day event. Today, daily events are scheduled throughout the week. The tradition began as the Tomato Harvest Festival and was associated with Hector Boiardi and the Chef Boyardee plant in Milton. Mr. Boiardi (left) served as the event’s grand marshal in the 1978 parade. Every year, people look forward to the Harvest Festival Parade, and every year they return.
