RONAN — After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ronan Harvest Festival returned to the south lawn of Glacier Bank along U.S. Highway 93 on Saturday, and so did the crowds. 

“We thought it would be something fun to do to get the kids out of the house,” said event goer Julie Thomas. “We enjoyed doing all the kid activities and checking out the vendors.”

More than a dozen years old, the annual community festival hosted by the Ronan Area Chamber of Commerce takes aim at celebrating local farmers and the return of autumn with a day of family friendly events.

Live music from various local entertainers and musicians filled the venue as festival goers strolled amongst more than 20 vendors offering homemade crafts, hand-crafted jewelry, locally sourced food products and outdoor living items.

An on-site beer keg from Ronan Co-op Brewery and a vendor selling freshly squeezed lemonade helped quench thirsts on the sunny day.  

Kid friendly activities like a pumpkin bowling game, jump houses and a petting zoo were also on site. New to the festival this year, a corn hole tournament was held with prize money awaarded to the top three finishers. Proceeds from tournament entry fees were donated to the Ronan Area Chamber of Commerce for future community projects and events.
