    H&B Forge will be at this event. It’s only a few miles from John Bryan State Park. Perhaps an overnight campout Sat-Sun is in order. At minimum, I’ll be at the fair Saturday.


    Old Town Trade Fair in Xenia: Enjoy the living history event with dealers and demonstrators, all in period clothing from the 1700’s through 1890’s, making and selling their wares. This two day event will demonstrate early American crafts such as blacksmithing, pottery, patterns, fabrics, finished clothing, silversmith, wooden products and leather. Some of the items the demonstrators will be making are baskets, brooms, soap and early flintlock engraving. Door prizes will be given away each hour with one grand prize awarded on Saturday and one on Sunday. Come see how our founding fathers lived.

    Sounds like fun. I'll see if I can't make it for the day at least.

    Thanks for the heads up. Ive lived in Warren/Greene county for 10 years now and haven't heard of this fair...I need to start looking into this sort of thing. The link is helpful, I will certainly be stopping by.
    Cheers

    So do you know if you'll be camping? I may have a new insulated sleeping pad to test out at JBSP.
