The Harvest Festival is held in Boyne City's downtown with music, crafts and fall produce, and is jointly organized by Boyne City Main Street and the Boyne Area Chamber. The entire Boyne City Farmers Market will move to Water and Lake Streets from 8 a.m. to noon. The farm market booths will sell a variety of apples and other harvest items including pumpkins, squash, apple butter, jam, honey and cider. Portions of Water Street and Lake Streets will be closed to traffic during the festival to make room for the Farmers Market, music and more than 30 arts and craft vendors.
