Living History Events
During the spring, summer and fall, living history events now abound! Our favorite time periods are the 1750s through 1820. Events which represent these periods range from French and Indian War or Seven Years War, American Revolutionary War or War of Independence, War of 1812, and Napoleonic Wars. Of course not ALL events represent a war! The concentration on war events is because living history really bloomed when the United States celebrated our bi-centennial. Major living history groups formed then and have evolved, and most of these groups now have civilian divisions and interpretations. There are many civilian events cropping up at museums sites across the country, as well.

One of the best known is the Fair at New Boston, held each Labor Day Weekend at George Rogers Clark Park, just west of Springfield, Ohio. This event is a 1790-1810 trade fair, and is sponsored by the George Rogers Clark Heritage Association, an all volunteer organization. This association also sponsors a spring event and plant sale in May, and a fall event in October. See their web site for event listings.

Kannik's Korner patterns are available from merchants at these shows, and we may be set up and demonstrating sewing at some!

Some of the shows we know about, are listed below. For more information and confirmation of the show dates, times and admission price  please contact the sponsor directly.
