FOR RELEASE: Greeley, CO — Since 1894 Greeley has been celebrating one of the most delicious root vegetables, the potato. The Friends of the Greeley Museums will pay their annual homage to the potato with Potato Day September 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Centennial Village Museum, 1475 A St.

Potato Day is a family-focused fall festival featuring musical entertainment, living history demonstrations, historical house tours, a used book sale, children’s games and activities, and of course, deliciously baked potatoes stacked with a choice of toppings.

Potato Day is a major fundraiser of the Friends of the Greeley Museums. Since 1987, the group has raised and donated nearly $500,000 to the City of Greeley Museums for educational programs and preservation projects.

Admission to Potato Day is $7, ages 3+. Children 2 and under are free.
