The HarvestFest Market
You’ll find exhibitors and local vendors showcasing and selling handmade crafts and goods.
Market hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Children always seem enjoy this event. Many City of Marietta vehicles will be on display for a up-close experience. Kids can explore firetrucks, police cars, tractors, tow trucks, and many more!
Touch-A-Truck takes place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Halloween Happenings (kids festival)
This portion of HarvestFest is planned to be a safe and fun Halloween event for kids 12 and younger. Costumes are encouraged — and you’ll definitely want to have a treat bag for trick-or-treating.
Kids can participate in carnival games, bounce on inflatables, and take part in other activities.
Halloween Happenings takes place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The costume contest is for handmade costumes — not rented ones!
If you want to participate, you should arrive at the Glover Park Stage by 1:30 to receive a contestant number. The contest is judged by age groups.
Scarecrows in the Square
Stroll through Glover Park in downtown Marietta this October to view the annual Scarecrows in the Square competition. Wander through at your leisure and take plenty of pictures! The scarecrows are on display all month long.
Awards will be given for scarecrows in several categories. In past years, scarecrow sponsors have handed out treats at their exhibition or have hosted other kids activities.
