We Want You

If you've ever wanted to get involved in the Milwaukee County Historical Society, if you love arts & crafts, or if you just like to enjoy spending time amongst beautiful, historic, rustic architecture, we have the perfect opportunity for you. MCHS is looking for volunteers for the 30th Annual Harvest Festival to do everything from selling raffle tickets to supervising the petting zoo (that’s right – petting zoo, full of baby animals). We are looking to fill shifts during both days of the festival, as well as event set-up on September 5, 6 or 7 and cleanup on Monday, September 10. This is a great opportunity to meet your local community and be a part of MCHS’ most anticipated yearly event. For more information, email or call us at 414.273.8288.

Preparing for the Harvest

It’s less than one month away till the 30th Annual Harvest Festival of Arts & Crafts on Saturday and Sunday, September 8th and 9th, and we can hardly wait. Preparations are underway to make this year one of the best in the thirty years since the first Harvest Festival first began.

The festival, held annually at Trimborn Farm in Greendale, features over one hundred exhibitors from the Midwestern Area, all specially chosen by a panel of judges for originality of design and quality of craft. See thousands of the finest pieces hand-crafted from a variety of media.

Start your holiday shopping early and enjoy food and musical entertainment all weekend. Come Saturday from 11:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. for special family games and activities, and stop by our petting zoo to visit the baby animals.

Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of free parking at Southridge Mall. A complimentary shuttle is available to transport visitors between Southridge Mall and Trimborn Farm.

Regular event admission is $5.00 for adults. All proceeds go to the support of the Milwaukee County Historical Society for continuing educational and cultural programs.
