About Full Moon & Folklore Walk at Appleton Farms

Join us at as darkness settles on the farm to immerse yourself in a nighttime adventure, guided only by the glow of the full moon. We will start the evening at the farmhouse where we will learn about the mysteries that the full moon holds, and read folk lore from around the world that celebrates her presence. We will then venture out into the night to walk in her soft glow and listen for the sounds of nighttime on the farm. The evening will end with hot chocolate and a newfound appreciate for the magic that the night sky holds.

All children must be accompanied by an adult. This is appropriate for adventurous kids as young as 6 years old, but is geared towards learners of all ages including adults. Please be aware that we do walk in the dark during a large portion of the event. As such, adult discretion on your child’s ability to manage this activity is advised.

Be sure to wear weather-appropriate clothing and boots or shoes that are appropriate for hiking in potentially wet, snowy and muddy spots, or over uneven terrain. Flashlights will not be provided. Should you prefer to have one, please provide your own. Light levels will depend on cloud coverage. All hikes are weather permitting. 

Space is limited for this event and pre-registration is required.
