Mark your calendars, dust off your costumes and celebrate the fall season with the West Community.


We’ll have food concessions for sale as well as games, crafts, pumpkin painting, and face painting for all ages. 


The Harvest Festival is our most popular event of the year, but it is only successful because of the time and effort parents and staff put in to it. And we need your help!! Please consider donating baking goods and/or volunteering your time to support this great community tradition.
