Harvest Fair is a celebration of local farming and community drawing several thousand guests of all ages to historic Johnson Farm each year.
This highly anticipated family event provides all-day, high-energy activities alongside educational opportunities to experience hands-on the value of local farms and food. From carriage rides and cider pressing to sheep shearing, local music, and locally grown and prepared foods, Harvest Fair connects people to our beautiful land.
Attended by both Bainbridge Island residents and off-island visitors, the success of Harvest Fair relies on the ongoing collaboration of businesses and organizations that share our belief in the benefits of a thriving local agricultural community.
Organizations involved in Harvest Fair include dozens of local businesses, nonprofits, farms, restaurants, and caterers
