All proceeds of the event will benefit the Waterloo Restoration Project. The Harvest Moon Festival is sponsored by the Friends of Waterloo Village, a small, but committed cadre of citizens dedicated to securing funds for the restoration and sustainability of one of the Skylands region’s historic treasures.

Waterloo Village is a restored 19th century canal town in Stanhope. In its heyday it was approximately the half-way point in the 102-mile trip along the Morris Canal, which ran from Jersey City to Phillipsburg, New Jersey. It possessed all the accommodations necessary to service the needs of a canal operation, including an inn, general store, church, blacksmith shop and a watermill.
