The Fairbairn House Heritage Centre is celebrating the fall harvest. Join us at this charming heritage home in Wakefield. Learn more about local products, and enjoy watching various demonstrations and performances. A great way to have fun as a family!

Take the opportunity to explore the village shops or to spend time on a local terrace at the end of the day. The reflection of colourful trees on the water with the famous covered bridge in the background make a perfect scene for your fall photos.


  • Ice-cream-making workshop (1 pm)
  • Performance by Tractor, a folk-rock band from Wakefield (2 pm)
  • Butter-making workshop (3 pm)
  • Cattail mat weaving workshop
  • Cider press demonstration (Ferme et Forêt)
