A History Festival and a Harvest Festival set to take place on Saturday in East Hampton Village have both been canceled due to weather. 

The History Festival was to be held at the East Hampton Historical Society's Mulford Farm on James Lane, with Revolutionary War re-enactors, historical demonstrations, games, crafts, music, and costumed interpreters bringing the past to life. More than a dozen organizations had joined together for it, including the Amagansett Life Saving Station Museum, the East End Classic Boat Society, the East Hampton Historical Farm Museum, East Hampton Trails Preservation Society, the Ladies Village Improvement Society, the Montauk Historical Society, the Montaukett Nation, the Shinnecock Nation, the Springs Historical Society, and the Wainscott Heritage Project. Steve Long, the East Hampton Historical Society's executive director, said he hoped the festival could instead take place in May. 

The Harvest Festival, East Hampton Village's first, was to take place in Herrick Park. No word yet on whether an alternate date will be planned.
