Calling all Acorn aficionados, enthusiasts and oak-nut neophytes: time to celebrate! Join us for FREE demos, contests, food & fun.

About this Event

The 2019 Acorn Festival opens Sunday, December 8th at 1PM with acorn talk & tour through beautiful paths of D Acres. Topics of discussion will include New England Oak Ecology, health, and other forest news. We will identify how to tell a “good” (for eating) acorn from a “bad” one, tools & techniques for gathering efficiently (with a light footprint) and how to process for human consumption.

Festival activities and contests are FREE.

WHAT TO BRING: Dress for the weather (gloves, rain-coat, etc). We’ll have plenty of acorns to work with, but you are welcome to bring acorns you have gathered elsewhere. Been inspired? You can bring a submission for one or all of the acorn contests (see categories below).

Acorn contest submissions may be entered on the day (12/8/19), and will be voted on by the day’s participants.

CONTESTS include:

• The Biggest (& Smallest) Acorn (s)

• Acorn drawing / photo (please bring in frame that can stand on table)
