A Thank You to our Community Sponsors

We appreciate all of our sponsors that will help make 2024 one to remember!

The Falls Harvest Festival Committee is made up entirely of volunteers, and the event would not be possible without the help from our generous sponsors.

This festival is made possible through the tourism assistance grant program of the Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce as the Tourism Promotion Agency of Schuyler County.

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
