Wheatland Green Harvest Festival - Wheatland
Wheatland’s Green Harvest Festival takes place over about 7 days toward the end of August every year and is a combination of free public concerts at the city’s band shell (emphasis is on bluegrass, folk and eclectic music) as well as lots of kids’ games and activities, a quilt show, a garden walk, an open air vendors and farmers market, a pet parade (lots of fun.. They’ve had everything from goats to goldfish) and a runaway veggie contest.
Many artists and crafters display and sell their wares at this annual event which, has become the premier family event for Platte County. That same evening is the Wheatland Salsa Tasting Contest featuring more than a dozen contestants entering more than 20 different salsas as well as music from” South of the Border,” a cash bar selling margaritas, and an opportunity to have a whole lot of fun.
The Platte County Farmers Market is active all summer with markets every Saturday a.m. from 8:00 until 11:00 or later.
