MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. — Wartburg in Mount Vernon launches its 150th anniversary celebration with its annual Fall Festival on Saturday, on the campus.

The Fall Festival was once an annual tradition at the campus before being restarted last year.

“The goal of this fun and informative festival is to highlight Wartburg’s strong sense of community and help raise awareness of the great programs and services available to those entrusted to our care,” David Gentner, Wartburg’s chief executive officer, said in a statement.

Almost 500 guests are expected to attend the event, which will include craft vendors, information booths, regional food trucks, local art exhibitions, and musical performances through the day.

The Future Society will sponsor a children’s activity area, and raffles and information about Wartburg’s history and services are also planned.
