The first Halifax Harvest Day was held October 10, 1992. The purpose of the event was to promote the heritage, Southern hospitality, and agrarian culture in Halifax County, and to entice the millions of route 95 travelers to visit the county to learn more about the county's past and present agricultural heritage, in addition to spending some of their dollars.
Years later, the tradition continues and Halifax Harvest Days gets bigger and better each year.
