Annual Williamsburg Festival!

It's Our 27th Annual 
Williamsburg Festival!
Saturday October 7 & Sunday October 8
9am-5pm
Free Admission!
 
Step back 200 years in time to 18th Century Williamsburg, as the beautiful grounds of Pine Tree Barn are transformed into a bustling colonial village! 
Explore the marketplace & unique wares that surround the public square. Find special treasures inside Pine Tree & meet the makers of the hand-made furniture we carry year round in the Heritage Loft. 
 
Carefully selected artisans, many of national recognition, will demonstrate techniques of traditional craftsmanship, including watercolorists, portrait artists, potters, woodcarvers, Windsor chair making, cabinetmakers, candlemakers, spinners, weavers, folk artists, bagpipers, primitive doll artists, fiber artists, felters, Shaker box maker, period firearms, jewelers, metal smiths and more. We will have beautiful period music provided by noted mandolin musician John Whitacre. 
 
Throughout the weekend enjoy entertainment and historical presentations from a variety of special guests, entertainers, 
re-enactors and more. The 8th Pennsylvania Regiment will be encamped, and will provide demonstrations and explain the life and routines of an 18th century colonial militia.
 
Special guest Roger Moore, a direct descendant of the Easter Woodland Native American Melungeon Tribe will offer insights and explanation of the lives and traditions of his people. Mr. Moore will be making formal presentations twice daily both days. Mr. Moore will have a fascinating collection of artifacts on display, and will be available for questions and conversation all day, both days. 
 
Also with us this year, we are pleased to have Dr. Thelonius Balthasar, purveyor of tinctures and salves for all ailments - both man and beast! Portrayed by Michael Fallin of the Ohio Historical Society, Dr. Balthasar will take you on an amusing and educational journey back in time to the age of the travelling medicine show. Mr. Fallin has performed for audiences across North America, and is a delight. He will be performing both days, and when not performing will be available (in character!) to answer any and all questions. 
 
In the Tree Barn we are pleased to have Mr. Fred Donley. Mr. Donley is an avid collector of period muzzleloading rifles, powderhorns and accessories from the 18th and 19th Century. Mr. Donley will have on hand one of the finest collection of rare, Wayne County-made muzzleloaders in existence today. 
 
For the kids, there will be face painting, farm animals & games.

This event is free to attend, and there is no charge to park, either! 

 
We will be serving a special menu indoors, in the Granary Restaurant. Outside, on the village green, a delicious selection of some of our favorites will be offered, which you can enjoy in the comfort of our patio overlooking the valley and lakes.
