  • A HUGE Silent Auction and Raffle with thousands of dollars of goods and services including a family membership to the Mariposa Museum, dinner and a movie with the Peterborough Diner and Peterborough Community Theater, tickets for the Palace Theatre in Manchester, ski passes for Crotched Mountain, Granite State Whale Watch tickets, a class at the Sharon Arts Center, Park Hopper tickets for Disney World, and much more!
We're especially excited that this year's fair will feature several budding artists and crafters in our first ever Youth Vendor section, open from 10-11:30am.  Stop by to pick up a special treat made by our very own under 12 crowd! 

The 4th grade class at Greenfield Elementary School has already gotten into the spirit and created special Harvest Fair flags that will be used to decorate the Greenfield Meeting House and grounds on the day of the Fair.  

The Harvest Fair will be held rain or shine from 9am-3pm and admission is free.  All PTO proceeds go directly to benefit the students of Greenfield Elementary School.

And don't forget that the Friends of the Library book and yard sale will be held on the Library grounds to coincide with the Harvest Fair!  Local businesses The Riverhouse Cafe, Envisage Nail Spa & Boutique, and Forget Me Not Antiques and Collectibles are also getting into the act, from providing music on the day to donating a percentage of their daily revenues to the Greenfield Elementary School PTO.

Be sure to come by Saturday and check it out!

We need a hay wagon!

The Greenfield PTO 44th annual Harvest Fair is fast approaching!  This great community event will take place October 5th at the Greenfield Meeting House, with vendors, food, and plenty of family-friendly activities.  The PTO is still looking for a hay wagon that can be used to offer hay rides to the adorable munchkins, parents, and grandparents.  If you have one that they can use (you drive? they drive? just let them know!) please reach out. If you know someone who does, please pass on the message! The hay ride is a great part of this annual tradition, and hay-piggy-back-rides just wouldn’t be the same.  If you  can help, please call Angelique at 603 769 0680 or email

Community Conversation September 14

In spring of 2012, as part of the vision statement of our updated Master Plan, residents directed The Planning Board to explore ways to preserve and protect the village. After securing two Community Planning Grants, the Planning Board is holding the second in a series of Community Conversations for residents on Saturday, September 14 from 9:00 until noon at the Stephenson Memorial Library in the Wensburg Room. The subject of the conversation will be the creation of a Neighborhood Heritage District in the village. Copies of the proposal are available on line at the Town website at
and at the Town Offices. All residents are welcome. Refreshments will be served and child care will be provided. For further information, contact Bob Marshall at or 547-3350 after 4 p.m.”
