FALL FESTIVAL 2017 OCTOBER 28 and 29

October 29, 2017 @ 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

 

Join us for Fall Festival! 

Throughout the historic village you’ll see how New Salem villagers prepared for the cold days ahead as the interpreters show you jobs such as candle dipping, soap making, basket making, spinning wool, knitting, gardening, natural dyeing, and broom making. Visitors can also see how fruits and vegetables were preserved during the winter. 

It’s also a great time to get a head-start on your holiday shopping at our unique gift shops!
