“We’ve been talking about expanding the Festival and including a living history experience since the beginning,” says Todd Prince, Park Manager.  “Working with our Museum Foundation, we finally decided to take the leap and offer an expanded experience to the community and all our patrons.  It will be a great event for anyone attracted to history, the visual arts and folk music.”  Museum Foundation Chair, Mike Scott, added, “The Foundation is thrilled to offer this family friendly experience to the community.  It is a wonderful opportunity for us all to experience our heritage.” For more information, including the entertainment and demonstration schedule and a list of our sponsors, visit:
