Harvest Festival at Ross
    On Sunday, the Ross School will host its annual harvest festival at the Center for Well-Being on Goodfriend Drive in East Hampton.
    Offering an indoor farmers market featuring produce and organic products from local purveyors, live music by Caroline Doctorow and Job Potter, with food, games, and more, the family festival is free and will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    Prior to the fun and games, there will be an admissions information session at 10 a.m. for parents interested in sending their children to the school. Reservations with the school have been requested for this session.

Find Your Inner Buccaneer
    David Engel’s Pirate School — which has been featured in New York magazine’s “Best of New York: Kids,” and has performed extensively around the world — will drop anchor at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton on Sunday as the museum hosts a Family Pirate festival from 1 to 4 p.m.
    Touted as a “one-man seafaring vaudeville that spoofs the Golden Age of Sail,” David Engel will follow the 1 p.m. performance with an “academy” where eager pirates-in-training can learn the fine and ferocious pirate arts of swashbuckling and gathering doubloons, and engage in art activities, face painting, and more.
    Admission is free and no advance registration is required. The pirate festival will take place rain or shine.
