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
