PLEASE NOTE: All events and in-person programs have been canceled for the remainder of 2020 due to recent flood damage combined with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to offer virtual programs and to develop more online content. Our energies will be focused on completing repairs and making the Newlin Grist Mill better when we reopen. Thank you for your understanding.
A local favorite, this event provides fun for the whole family! Admission is free for all ages. Parking is $5 per car.
Old favorites will be returning – Newlin’s millwrights, a cooper, a ropemaker, a potter, iron makers, woodworkers and more. Listen to music, learn colonial dancing, and enjoy performances by Tuckers’ Tales Puppet Theatre! Many favorite activities from years past will be returning, including pumpkin painting and hayrides.
Visitors can shop in the festival’s Colonial Market for chocolate and candies from Shane Confectionery, handmade soaps, colonial games, pumpkins, and cornmeal ground in the site’s 1704 grist mill. Traditionally made pretzels from a woodfired bake oven will be available for purchase.
For adult guests, the festival will feature a Colonial Tavern in the afternoon, where Levante Brewing and Penns Woods Winery will be on hand to sell beer and wine. Food will also be available for purchase.
Shuttle buses between the parking area and the festival site will run every 15 minutes throughout the event. Additional costs apply for hayrides and pumpkin painting. Visitors must be 21+ to drink in the tavern.
