2017 Homestead Fair

Homestead Fair

Come join us Thanksgiving weekend for our 2017 Homestead Fair! This exposition of fine crafts and heirloom skills is a fun, educational festival with activities for the entire family.

Help milk a cow or lend a hand with the old-fashioned timber frame barn raising! Sample one of the multicultural dishes from the food court or enjoy a delicious ice-cream cone while touring the farm on a horse-drawn hay wagon.

Browse the daily schedule for a complete list of make-your-own projects and demonstrations—including sheepdog work, horse farming, pottery making, blacksmithing, woodworking, quilting, weaving, spinning, basketry, boot making, cheese making and much, much more…

See you at the Fair!
