Artist Sara Keeler of Pennington is the winner of the Hopewell Harvest Fair’s Cover Art contest.

Keeler won $500 for her illustration, which will now be seen on the cover of this year’s Hopewell Harvest Fair Almanac.

Traditionally, the Harvest Fair brings together local food vendors, small business, and artists, as well as numerous activities from hayrides, to boardwalk-type games, to inflatables, plus multiple contests, including spoon-and-egg races for kids to those highlighting local talent, like baking and photography. There is also live music. It is scheduled to take place Saturday, Sept. 22 on the grounds of the Hopewell Elementary School.

This year the fair committee, led by chairperson Heidi Wilenius, is bringing back the Harvest Moon, a free live music event the night before the fair to kick off the celebration and set the tone. This year’s event will feature local band Castle Lane, and will act as a fundraiser for the Harvest Fair. More information will be available online at in the coming months.
