A LOCAL LEGACY in the HISTORY OF HARVEST HOMECOMING
Cora Jacobs accepted $300 to put on a "Pumpkin Festival" in 1967 after pronouncing her idea for over 5 years to many different groups of people in the southern Indiana area and finally proved the need for a local festival against the many 'naysayers'. Two years later in 1969, Cora together with a few other dedicated locals officially formed the Harvest Homecoming Festival organization and the group of volunteers have continued the tradition ever since (minus the 2020 year missed due to COVID complications).
Also a long time Harvest Homecoming volunteer, Cora's granddaughter Robin Jacobs DuVall, was recorded at the 9/20/2023 joint board meeting talking about her grandmother and sharing some stories. We've saved that audio file here and you can listen to some cute and funny stories about the wild world and pioneering efforts of her grandmother Cora and Cora's life views. We are excited for the Cora Jacobs local family to be this year's Grand Marshall of our parade for the Old Fashioned Harvest 2023.
