Tomorrow is the first day of the 48th Annual Goschenhoppen Folk Festival. This year's theme is the cook stove and "cleaning, always cleaning."
The festival takes place on the Antes House plantation in Frederick, PA. It is off Rt 73 between Zieglerville and Gilbertsville. Find directions here. The cost for adults (age 16+) is $12, but you can get a two-day pass for $18; and for children (age 6-15) is $3. Children age 5 and younger are free.
It would be fun if you could come visit. If you are in the area and can, check out the Before You Go and FAQs. The Before You Go section has a plantation map with the festival layout. Make your way over to the Butter Churning demonstration and mention Tea Time With Melody Q. Xyra chats with everyone, but if you name drop she will give you a bigger smile.
Friday the festival runs from 12 noon to 8 PM. Saturday the gate opens at 10 AM and runs to 6 PM.
I went last year. It was a lot of fun to see the different home skills and trades and past times. Do you remember this?
Were you following us then?
I wonder which of my sisters will be going this year? Do you have any guesses?
Come back again soon.
