The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce will host the sixth annual Harvest Festival, a celebration of downtown New Milford, Oct. 12. Festivities will run from noon to 5 p.m. on the south end of the Village Green and Bank Street, which will be closed to motor traffic during the event to encourage pedestrians.

Live music, entertainment and a variety of activities will be offered.

New Milford businesses and chamber members are welcome to participate.

Participants are welcome to display for a fee of $25 for non-chamber members and free for chamber members. Spaces on the green and Bank Street will be assigned. Participants must supply their own equipment, such as tables, chairs and tents. Only weights will be allowed for tents; no stakes.

Electricity will not be provided.

In the event of rain, participants may be moved to the railroad station and station platform, or the event may be cancelled.
