Open Hearth Cooking Day

The Friends of High Point State Park will be hosting their annual Open Hearth Cooking Day on Saturday, October 4 from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM in the Interpretive Center at High Point State Park.

Cooking demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day, so visitors are encouraged to stop by at any time and taste a sample of the food that has just come off the hearth. A variety of foods will be prepared, including snacks, soups, meats, and desserts.

There will also be cider pressing demonstrations at 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM and a seasonal craft activity for children will be offered at 1:30 PM. Park souvenirs and hand-crafts will be available for sale in the afternoon (proceeds support the Friends of High Point).

The Friends of High Point State Park is a not-for-profit organization that supports historical, scientific, educational, recreational, and natural resource management activities within the Park.
