Shakers, working hammer and tongs! Join us on Saturday and Sunday as expert metalworkers demonstrate their exciting craft! Many metal items used by the Shakers were made in a blacksmith’s forge. Historic Shaker metalworking will be highlighted, along with contemporary techniques. See a variety of forges in use and watch hinges, latches and door handles being forged by hand, many for sale in our Village Store.
Join us for our 19th Annual Country Fair! A two-day Fall festival that fills the Village with food trucks, craft exhibitors and a farmers market! All historic buildings are open and staffed as usual, too. Juried quilt show on exhibit (vote for your favorites) with a drawing of the winning ticket for the Hancock Shaker Quilt raffle. Chicken races and other kids’ activities. Display of antique tractors and farm equipment.
