The 24th annual Harvest Festival is a project of the Lake Superior Sustainable Farming
Association of Minnesota, and was founded as an educational outreach program aimed to
showcase the local sustainable agriculture production of food throughout the Lake Superior
coastal region of northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin. The goal of the event is
to help promote sustainable local food production as a key component of a healthier economy,
environment and community in the Lake Superior region.
Today the Harvest Festival has grown into a well attended event providing education, training
and outreach in a greater effort to develop sustainable communities and economies in our
coastal area. The 1-day outdoor event attracts attendance of over 5,000 people of all ages from
throughout the greater Twin Ports region.
