Harvest festival at Terenten/Terento
With the Harvest Festival, culture also can be experienced firsthand. At the Church Field in the village center, the grain is cut with a scythe, bound into sheaves, and put up to dry on wooden racks. Visitors are invited to join in. The typical mid-morning snack known as Neinern will be offered, and the traditional equipment will of course also be present, such as the threshing machine, windmill, plow, and seed tub. School-aged children harvest onions, fennel, carrots, potatoes, and other crops which they themselves planted back in the spring. The program is rounded out by a farmer’s market, specialties from the farm women, music, traditional games for children, and the big playground.
