Melvern celebrates autumn by gettin’ down on the farm

Melvern is getting “down on the farm” for fall, and is inviting everyone to celebrate at the Melvern Fall Festival, Saturday, Nov. 4, 2023, in downtown Melvern. The morning will start off with a biscuits and gravy breakfast at Melvern Community Center.

This year’s festival will feature a tractor and small engine show, and Stone and Sparrow Farm Mill and a flour mill demo. Everyone in the Melvern community and surrounding area is invited to bring their tractors or small engines in to display. There will be a few prizes.

Also at the event,  Melvern Pride will be hosting its first tractor pedal pull for kids 4-12, who can qualify for the state pedal pull. Adults won’t be left out and can try their hand at the tractor pedal pull – fun for the whole family.
