Dear Friends,

We hope this finds you and your family well as we get to the final days of summer.  As we write this, it is 60 degrees and rainy. The forecast for the coming week is around 90-degrees and humid.  The calendar says fall is coming eventually!

We are looking forward to this year’s festival.  It will be held on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 10am-4pm.  As always, the festival is free for everyone but donations are welcome.

As per tradition, we have many crafters and artisans that will be demonstrating and selling their wares.  Local authors, Dennis Esler and S. Fabian Butalla will be there for book signings. Musicians Jon Niemi, Don Guttormson, and Art Lehtonen will be performing.

Strawberry Fields will again be joining us to provide carriage and guided horse rides.   We will have several baby farm animals for the children to play with and hold.

Fresh produce will be available for purchase as well as various other lunch options.

We hope to see you there so you can “Experience Old World Serenity”!
