Organization Fact:

One of the biggest community outreach functions that this festivals provides - is giving back to other not-for-profits.  How?  Over 40 area charities, organizations and churches rely on our festival as their largest single fundraiser of the year.  Without the festival, these organizations would lose a considerable funding source.  The pure family oriented, 1800 period outdoor atmosphere of this event truly makes it unique in the community and does something  very few other events can do - giving back to so many.

The Living History camp provides an opportunity for today’s festival-goers to observe, and sometimes participate in, life from another era.
