Open to the public. No admission fee. Rain or shine!
Harvest Festival is The Putney School’s annual fall celebration, and it dates back to the school’s founding in 1935. We celebrate fall through food, music, crafts, games, and good cheer. The event includes bounce houses, face painting, games, and more. Alumni, parents, the local community, and friends of the school come together, and we hope you will join us. If you’re not feeling well, please stay home. Thank you!
