Early American craftsmen and artisans will come to life on Sunday, October 2, 2022, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the historic Swetland Homestead in Wyoming. The Fall Festival features crafters in the arts of quill pen and ink, wood carving, wheat weaving, cane craving, blacksmithing, and much more. Hearth cooking methods will be demonstrated over a fire in the original Swetland Homestead summer kitchen fireplace. There will be a soap-making demo, cross-cut saw demonstrations, quilting, and primitive artwork will also be shown. The event is held annually as a learning experience for every member of the family. Children are invited to make 1700s toys and other crafts. Music of the period will entertain as you browse.
New this year is an assortment of contemporary crafters who will compliment the traditional vendors of years past. If you’re looking for a gift for someone or just something special for yourself, you’ll almost certainly find it. The Festival will also have a complement of food trucks available as well. The event will run from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the newly restored Swetland Homestead, 885 Wyoming Avenue, Wyoming PA. Admission to the Fall Festival on Sunday is $5.
