Split-Rail-Fence-Woods-1235863Pitch horseshoes, watch Snoopy the sorghum-making mule do his thing, grab a partner and enter the cross-cut log sawing contest, or enter the cornbread cookoff. If log sawing or cornbread cooking is not your thing, how about a game of  checkers? Or chess? Be sure to check out the basket maker, the weaver, the quilter and the potter, each demonstrating their craft. Also see a lumberjack harrow, and watch skilled craftsmen make oak shingles the way they used to. They’re handy with an axe, a froe and a mallet!

It’s an old-time, family-friendly event and it’s all free, so come join us for a step back in time.
