As the park continues to grow each year, new events are added.
Last Saturday at the Park
Join us for a bit of history on the last Saturday of each month from January through November. Perry Hill, the Backwoods Cabin, will be bustling with activities of the 18th century. This is not a big event and allows for lots of interactions with the interpreters. During moderate weather (90 degrees or less) interpreters will be there from 10:30-4:00. During June, July, and August they will be there from 10:30-1:00. If you want to know what will be happening each month contact Lynn Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (803)-279-7560.
Last Saturday Schedule for 2013
Everyone is welcome to join in. Come in either colonial attire or comfortable dress. As always, this is a free event.
Colonial Times: A Day to Remember
The largest and oldest event is Colonial Times: A Day to Remember. Held the third weekend in October, this event offers an opportunity to understand what daily life was like for the people who settled our area. It was also named one of the top 20 events in the southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society in 2000, 2001 and 2004. In addition to several featured guests, the event features demonstrations in pottery, weaving and spinning, frontier trading, quilting, blacksmithing, meat curing, gold and silversmithing, candle making, and much more. It is a wonderful and informative event for the entire family.
Colonial Times: Under the Crown
June is the time for Under the Crown. It is 1780 and the colonies are in rebellion. Charleston is under Siege and may have already fallen, the rebel forces were defeated at Savannah last year in 1779. Things are not going well for the American cause. But the Rebels are not done yet!
Come out and see this conflict, a very uncivil war. Find out what happens when the Crown moves in, old scores are settled and lives are changed forever. Our special guest to be announced.
The park is available for those special events in your life—graduation parties, family reunions, Easter Egg hunts, picnics, and weddings. Contact Lynn Thompson at email@example.com or (803)-279-7560 for information about special uses for the park.
Preview Gala: Friday, April 19, 2013
We are most pleased and excited to announce the call for artists for the 10th annual Olde Towne Artisans’ Fair to take place at the beautiful living history park in the heart of Historic North Augusta, SC.
The purpose of this The Artisans’ Fair is to highlight a wide array of Fine Artists and Skilled Artisans. In addition to booths displaying items for sale, several sites throughout the park will have craftsmen demonstrating their skills. The park with its greenery, stream, footbridge, and eighteenth century buildings is a wonderful backdrop for a top-notch festival.
Join us on January 5th for our annual Gaming Night. Learn new (old) card games from Eric Scites (of Faire Wyndes) and dig in to some chili, cornbread, wine, ale, and desserts. There are several types of chili to choose from—even vegetarian chili!
