DetailsEvent Type Fairs and Festivals Description Step back in time to the late 18th century! This free family-friendly outdoor festival will feature costumed reenactors and hands-on activities. September was the time of year when tenant farmers on the Philipse Manor would harvest their wheat and start to bring it to the Philipse grist mills for assessment and grinding into flour. September was also apple harvest time in the Philipse orchards. Try your hand at grinding grain in a stone mill, grinding up apples for cider in a cider press, and other hands-on activities. Meet military and civilian reenactors, including General George Washington and his horse Nelson, members of Lord Dunmore’s Ethiopian Regiment and the First Rhode Island Regiment, colonial era craftsmen, and more. Play colonial-era games and learn more about the history of Westchester County before and during the American Revolution. Festival coincides with Yonkers RiverFest, featuring music, shopping, and food. Spend the day!
