The 2015 Wheat Ridge Olde Thyme Herb Festival and Harvest Celebration will be held this weekend, Oct. 9-11 at Grindstone Farm in the heart of Adams County’s Amish Community.

Grindstone Farm is located at 817 Tater Ridge Road between Wheat Ridge and the Appalachian Highway/SR32.

The Old Thyme Herb Celebration marks the end of the festival.

Festival hosts, Herb and Kim Erwin welcome visitors to come and shop the works of over 150 participating artisans, artists, crafters, and herbalists at this year’s event.

“We’re expecting a good turn out this year,” Mrs. Erwin said,”there are several new vendors this year and we’re still getting calls from others who want to participate.”

The festival will feature working potters, metal workers, basket makers, jewelry crafters, wood workers, quilters, weavers, knitters, flintkappers, a children’s book author, the Salsa Sisters from Germantown, Ky., primitive decor designers, an antique tractor show, and much, much more.

There will also be musicians performing throughout the three day festival including Serendipity, a trio who performs timeless hits from the 1960’s-1980’s.

In addition visitors will have the opportunity to stroll through two large barns filled with unique and novel antiques.

A variety of foods and drinks vendors will be on hand including: The Pig’s Place and vendors of roasted nuts, caramel apple sundaes, and several other unique and tasty food choices.

The festivals hours are: Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. -5 p.m.
