Yankee Peddler Festival
Step back into Early Colonial Days during this truly American event now in its 46th year.
For three weekends in September, Clay’s Park is transformed into the 18th century with musical and stage performers, traditional arts and crafts and the smell and taste of early colonial cooking. Step back in time as you walk through the wonder of the Yankee Peddler grounds, and enjoy the arts, crafts, food and entertainment that have become famous. Make it a weekend mini vacation and stay in one of our cabins!
Step back in time 200 years and visit pioneer America. Master artists and crafters assemble rustic shops along streams and amid lovely wooded dales. Sample food from colonial days, cooked over open fires. Stroll through seventy-five acres of entertainment for the whole family.
Town criers update festival goers with events happening on the fairgrounds throughout the day. Visit with the militia and mountain men, or learn crafts with hands-on instruction. Witness master crafters and artists while they demonstrate the way they transform nature into something unique for you and yours.
