A brand new harvest event is coming to Mankato this fall.

"Gather in the GreenSeam" will celebrate a magnitude of agricultural people, organizations and businesses that help Mankato stand out in that sector.
Starting September 8th and running through October 29th, each themed weekend will be focused around food, harvest and natural resources. There will also be an array of experiences from farm tours to wine tastings.
"We just want people to understand that we are a rich area for Ag we are a place that has so many outputs, people are amazed that we are the capital of this or that related to Ag. So that's what we're trying to do for folks is raise that awareness and hopefully that attracts businesses that want to associate themselves with other businesses that are in the Ag chain if you will," Visit Mankato President Anna Thill said.
"Gather in the Greenseam" is possible through a grant from Explore Minnesota Tourism's new event grant program. It is the first grant of its kind to be given in the Mankato community with the hopes of driving visitor traffic to the state.
