Potato Day was scheduled for October 2 in Gavrilov Posad. The festival is combined with a fair where you can buy potatoes and vegetables, grain and dairy products.
Initially, the harvest festival was supposed to take place on September 25, but the organizers decided to postpone it due to bad weather conditions.
Potato Day has long become a special tradition; it is held at this place for the 15th time. It is in the Gavrilovo-Posad district that the most delicious potatoes in the region are grown, since there are fertile black earth lands here.
Five settlements of the district will present their products to guests: Petrovskoye will bring fish, Novoselkovskoye rural settlement - berries and mushrooms, Shekshovskoye - potatoes, Osanovetskoye - dairy products, and Gavrilov Posad - handicrafts.
Due to the cold weather, the fair will not host a traditional farm animal show. But an exhibition of agricultural machinery will take place: local agricultural producers will demonstrate to the guests of the event the advanced agricultural machines that work on their farms.
