An American Celebration @ Old Economy Village
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Enjoy 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.
 
This year we will have musical entertainment in the garden as well as a host of other activities.  We will also have the children’s fire pumper, crafts, cookies, and games for children (and children at heart) to play.
 
 
Rain date is Sunday, June 24, 2018, 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
 
Regular admission fees apply.
Free for FOEV members, Ambridge Pass holders, Active Military

Concert in the Garden @ Old Economy Village garden
Aug 19 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join us for a concert in the garden on Sunday, August 19th, at 5:00 p.m.  Gates will open at 4:00 p.m. 
 
Tickets for the concert will be available in advance at the Old Economy Village Visitor Center.  Price to be decided.  You may also purchase your tickets by Paypal. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved into the Feast Hall so there will be a limited number of tickets available for the show.
 
This is a wonderful event that harkens back to the days when the Harmonists held concerts in the garden in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This event is lawn chair seating so bring along a chair or blanket, a picnic basket, and your favorite beverage and enjoy a beautiful evening at Old Economy.
 
Remember that tickets are limited so get yours before they are sold out!
