The New Glarus Historical Society will host its Harvest Fest at the Swiss Historical Village Museum in New Glarus, WI on Sunday.

This annual event provides families with opportunities to view and participate in many old-time craft demonstrations such as making cheese in a copper kettle as big as a hot tub, rope-making, sausage and sauerkraut making.  Watch quilters, basket-makers and knitters create beautiful heirloom items.

Spend time with Civil War re-enactors and see an actual Civil War cannon.  Enjoy tasty food samples and consider taking some treats home from the bake sale. Guides and other demonstrators will be available to answer questions about the artifacts displayed in the 14 buildings on the beautiful, decorated grounds of the museum. Buildings include a real settler’s log cabin, a log replica of the first church in New Glarus, a fire house, blacksmith shop, rural school house and a store filled with collectibles, fabric and lace.

Admission prices are reduced for this special event:  Adults $5 and Children $3.  Historical Society Members are admitted free of charge. Sorry, no credit, debit or other discount cards on this day. We look forward to seeing you!
