The event continues from noon to 5 p.m. today, Sept. 21.
Michael Knecht, site administrator, said the 2014 Autumnfest celebration is a combination of Old Economy's entertainment in October and elements of the old Ernstfest they used to do.
"We didn't have the hard drinks this year, but we did have the German music in German food."
Musical entertainment located on the lawn includes Daniels & McClain from noon to 1 p.m.; Burke's Bavarian Brass from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.; and Koni Ostertag roaming the grounds from 2:30 to 5 p.m.
Several vendors are located in the upstairs of the Feast Hall, selling everything from homemade jellies and hand to salvaged wood toys and Pittsburghese greeting cards. Grape pies from Old Economy Village are also available for purchase.
Out on the grounds where the 19th century Harmonists lived, visitors could check out a variety of demonstrations from broom making and blacksmithing to cider pressing and sausage making. There is plenty available for children at the event, which is sponsored by The Alliance f Germanic Societies of Pittsburgh.
"We have Harvest activities and a variety if craft activities," Knecht said.
Knecht said many activities will be moved inside on Sunday so if inclement weather occurs, the activities will still be available.
