There is so much to choose from this fall.  From grape harvesting to Downton Abbey costumes at Winterthur, great restaurants and fall floweres at Longwood Gardens.  Below are listed just a few of the events going on right now that are close to Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast.

Brandywine Valley Wine Trail Annual Harvest September 28-29 and October 4, 2014

Hayrides, live music, country fresh air, barbecues, hay rides.   Unleash your inner Lucy by joining in the grape stomping!   Why not order one of Hamanassett’s picnic baskets to enhance your visit.  For more information check out their web site and then see what each individual winery is offering.

Longwood Gardens Chrysanthemum Festival September 6 – November 23

Giant pumpkins, gourds, a riot of colors, and live concerts.  

Newlin Grist Mill October 4 10 AM – 5 PM

Enjoy demonstrations of 18th century life.  Your taste buds will be tantalized with the aromas coming from a wood burning bake oven and open hearth fire cooking demonstrations.  There will also be artisans showing paper making, iron making, blacksmithing, and chair caning.  Then you can join in with Colonial dancing and period games, enjoy a hay ride, and listen to Colonial music.  There will even be cows, sheep, and chickens, oh my.  And …..drum roill because you don’t hear this very often……….admission is free!  Newlin Grist Mill in only two miles from Hamanassett Bed and Breakfast.  I will definitely see you there.
