Hopkins Forest will host its annual Fall Festival on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 1 to 4 p.m., in the forest at the junction of Northwest Hill Road and Bulkley Street.

The event is free, family-friendly, and open to everyone.

The annual Fall Festival will feature music, apple butter and cider production, traditional woodworking demonstrations, a canopy walkway, children’s activities, and refreshments.

A barnwright will demonstrate the craft of shaving pegs, a process used in traditional barn construction. Other hands-on activities will include cross-cut saw competitions and shake-splitting.

Hopkins Forest’s 2,600 acres are actively managed by Williams College. The forest contains hiking and cross-country ski trails, an herb garden, a visitor’s center, and a maple sugaring operation. The year-round attraction is open to the public daily during daylight hours.
