Come celebrate the beauty and bounty of fall at the Harvest Festival in Downtown Cobourg.

Think you can make it through the inflatable corn maze?

Do you have what it takes to stay on the mechanical bull?

Can you throw a bullseye with an axe?

Enjoy these activities, plus extended storefronts, seasonal vendors and lots of hearty food! A scarecrow contest has them popping up amongst the cornstalks, hay bales and pumpkins that decorate the street.
