Hydref Fall Festival set for Depreciation Lands Museum

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 | 11:19 PM


The Hydref – a Fall Festival & Market Faire

Oct. 5, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. rain or shine. There will be plenty to see and activities for everyone.

Traditionally the entire town and country side turned out for the annual Market Faire. You will meet skilled 18th century crafts people, re-enactors, and “sutlers,” purveyors of 18th century goods. Enjoy entertainment, demonstrations, live music, great food and activities for the children – you will find it all at the Hydref.

 

Children’s contest – Make an Apple Head doll at home and bring it to Hydref for the Best Apple-Head Contest! Awards in two categories, ages 5-9 and 10-17.

Purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to win a lovely woolen scarf, hand spun and hand woven right here at Depreciation Lands Museum.

The winners of the contest and the raffle will be announced at 2 p.m.

Hydref, which means “autumn” in Welsh, was named to commemorate the Welsh heritage of some of our early settlers. Come to shop, come to enjoy the 18th century village in real life.

You will be glad you came to the Hydref.

Admission: $5/adult, $3/children, DLM members free
