A bonfire, s’mores and music by Good Brother Earl all are on tap for the 10th annual Hartwood Fest on Oct. 13.

Hosted by Friends of Hartwood, the sell-out event takes place from 5:30 to 10 p.m. near the historic stables at the Allegheny County-owned park in Indiana Township.

Cost is $50. Proceeds benefit an ongoing project to restore and maintain the stables.

Food will be provided by Hartwood Restaurant. There will be guided hayrides, stable tours and a s’mores bar.

“We will have a large bonfire near the band so patrons can sit and enjoy the music and keep warm by the fire,” organizer Amy Giammattei said.

Last year, the event raised more than $10,000 and money helped pay for the tack room area to be plastered and painted, and the gates in the back courtyard to be rebuilt.

Friends of Hartwood also hosts three summer concerts and the Hartwood Hunt each year to raise money for projects at the park.

Tickets will be limited to 300 and are available at friendsofhartwood

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
