Harford County is hosting a free Halloween festival, with family- and pet-friendly activities, live music, food trucks, and local farm vendors in a unique rural setting. This new and exciting outdoor event will be held from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 24 at The Grove, 3519 Conowingo Road in Street.
Festivities will include a pet costume contest at 1 p.m., followed by a kids’ costume parade and contest at 2 p.m. In lieu of trick-or-treating, kids in the contest will receive candy in pre-wrapped bags and all kids will have the opportunity to make Halloween-themed crafts.
Doc’s BBQ and RB Grill food trucks will be available, and classic rock guitarist Benny Clough will provide the entertainment. Adults can enjoy products from local breweries and wineries.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to shop at The Grove, Harford County’s new agribusiness incubator. With eight indoor/outdoor stalls, The Grove is the place for local farmers, artists, and food processors to sell their products directly to consumers.
“Bring the family out for a fun afternoon, and see what’s happening at The Grove,” County Executive Barry Glassman said. “We’re excited to be hosting this Halloween event, and other themed events coming this fall, to introduce The Grove and promote agricultural commerce and sustainability in Harford County.”
