The New York Harvest Festival was the side project of the Annual HempSplash which was first held at Arrowhead Ranch in Parksville, NY. Founded by Rob Robinson at Lembo Lake in Modena, NY in 1995, in 1997 HF moved to Earlton and then Johnstown in 1998. From 1999 – 2003 HF called Echo Lake (Afton) its home. In 2004 we had our 10th Annual at Moose River Park (Lyonsdale). In 2005 HF was held at Tall Pines for one year and this will be our fourth year at the beautiful Camp Minglewood (Hancock).
The event began and remains today as a fundraiser for activism that Rob Robinson does in the Northeast. In 1998 he was joined by his current partner, Jen Rog. From New Paltz NORML to End Prohibition Now!, they have been fighting for your freedom and to end the war on cannabis users for years, making changes in the political and social worlds.
NY Harvest Festival is a 3-day, 3-night exploration of culture. We ARE this culture, we are not counter to it! We have a peaceful gathering every year at a campground, where on private property people gather to be themselves and enjoy a little bit of freedom with like-minded folks.
