Festival Overview

The Yankee Peddlers work tirelessly to enable visitors to immerse themselves in a time when crafting was the only way of life.   Visitors are able to explore and appreciate the beauty of arts and crafts in as "pure" a way as possible. The festival examines life between the years 1776-1825.  All crafters and vendors are required to dress in year appropriate attire at all times and are expected to provide educational displays and written histories of their crafts. Only handcrafted goods made by the exhibitors are permitted. For a full list of exhibitors, click here. Pleae be aware, cash is important to have as all vendors might not accept card.
