An American Celebration @ Old Economy Village
Jun 24 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

An American CelebrationEnjoy a “good ole” American summer time celebration for the entire family. Antique cars and bicycles will be on display. Food, historic artisans, musical entertainment, and family style games and activities create a wonderful experience for the entire family.

 

Take a few steps back to a simpler time when Summer days passed slowly and a cold lemonade beneath a shade tree was the best way to spend an afternoon. An American Celebration at Old Economy Village celebrates the less hectic pace of our past.
