About the Fall Harvest Festival:

Mill Neck Manor’s Fall Harvest Festival originally began in the Fall of 1957… click to view an original 1950s fall festival pamphlet.

Every year, Mill Neck Family’s Fall Harvest Festival draws tens of thousands of returning visitors and many more new friends. The Festival annually brings the best of the autumn season to Long Island, making a trip to the beautiful Mill Neck campus over Columbus Day weekend irresistible. The 2016 Fall Festival, is to be held on October 8 and 9 from 9 am to 5 pm, promises to be better than ever, with the return of ripe apples, handmade country crafts, seasonable produce, grilled bratwurst, children’s activities and many more activities throughout the weekend.

Located on the grounds of a historic Gold Coast estate, between Oyster Bay and Bayville, the Festival, also known as the Apple Fest, has it all. Visitors will find a wide variety of cheeses in the “Cheese House,” and plenty of mouth-watering baked goods, jellies, fudge and strudels. The “Country Store” also features meat and bacon products.

The Festival also showcases the latest in Deaf technology, sign language novelty items and books. Each year, Mill Neck Manor alumni attend the Fall Harvest Festival as a “homecoming,” with the event bringing the heart of the Long Island Deaf Community together.

Be sure to take a chance on our 50/50! Tickets are only $10 each, and the winner, picked on Sunday at 3 pm, receives half the net profit of the money collected. Over the years, winners have taken home over $10,000!

PLEASE NOTE: Parking fee is $15 per vehicle. No dogs on campus (certified service dogs, with proof, are permitted). No smoking on campus. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
