Our events are family fun that won’t stretch the budget
Wind down your summer weekends at our Summer Picnic Concerts in the Meadow, watch history interpreters doing all manner of necessary work the age-old way at our history reenactments and encampments, or root for your favorite vintage base ball team on their scheduled weekends, and more! Our reasonable concert and occasional event admission fees directly support our programs and help with our preservation and restoration work.
