The annual Cane Boil and Fiddle Fest will be held on Saturday at the Morningside Nature Center in Gainesville.

The fall festival runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and features the Morningside’s living historic farm set in the 1870s with traditional games and crafts, Old Time and Americana music and various historic demonstrations.

The free event, held every year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, will show visitors how to produce sugar cane syrup from stalk to bottle, ask interpreters about their lives on an 1870s farm and take a guided hike through Morningside’s sandhill ecosystem.

Food trucks and vendors will be available on-site and, while people are welcome, pets are not allowed in the park.

Morningside Nature Center is located at 3540 E. University Ave.
