Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area will have the annual Fall Festival event on Sunday, October 6th, 2019.
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Locations will be on the Historic Van Winkle Trail and at the Visitor Center.
Fall Festival is a time when volunteers demonstrate an old timey craft. In the past (most will be here again this year) we’ve had the following crafts or demonstrations:
Van Winkle Trail
Early Food Preservation
Old Timey Games
Stone Tool Making/Demo
Dutch Oven Demonstration
Pearling (the hard way to make buttons) Dowsing Demonstration
Mountain Woman Story Teller
Snake Oil Salesman
Pioneer Homesteader (how to make butter) Tall Tales Tellers
Old Cider Press
Lace Makers Spinners
We are always looking for new and fun crafters, story tellers, etc. to dress up and slide back in history for a few hours to help people reflect, visualize, and experience how things use to be. If you have a skill from the past and would enjoy sharing it with others, we’d love to hear from you!
Additionally, we could use a few behind the scenes workers to help unload the crafters earlier in the day, then help load them up at 4pm.
