Harvest Fest in Everett

The City of Everett will host Harvest Fest on Saturday, September 24, from 1-4 pm. 

Located at 199 School St., this event will have a pop-up farmer’s market to increase our resident’s access to locally sourced produce. 

There will be various local organizations, fresh produce, Everett restaurants, crafts, and live music. This event is free and open to all and will emphasize community, food access, and multiculturalism. 

We will also have activities centered around Hispanic Heritage Month. A great turnout is expected and will provide an excellent opportunity to revitalize Broadway. 

Our top priority for this event is finding alternative ways to increase access to fresh foods in our urban center.
