Hello to you all and greetings from the Morningside Nature Center Living History Farm! My name is Bricky Way and I’m the farm manager here. Our 2016 Cane Boil and Youth Fiddle Festival is coming up the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 26th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We are looking for exhibitors or vendors of traditional hand-crafted wares such as your quilts to enrich our festival and create a wonderful experience for our visitors!
The Cane Boil and Youth Fiddle Festival is held on our 1870 Living History Farm and continues the traditions of fall harvest celebrations complete with live fiddle, banjo and string-band music. Attractions that day also include the making and bottling of sugar cane syrup, biscuits hot from the wood cook stove, horse-drawn wagon rides and living history interpreters bringing a day on the farm in 1870 to life. We typically see 800-1000 patrons on the farm the day of the event!
We hope that members of your guild will be able to bring your wares to either exhibit or vend (or both) and join us here at the farm! If anyone is interested please have them contact me and I can provide additional information as well as send a copy of the City’s Participant Use Agreement and Application for them to fill out.
Thank you, we hope you can make it!
