The Trade Fair is just 7 weeks away! We just had another meeting at the Village last night and everything is on schedule for another great event. I found out last night that OHS is not helping out this year with any funds to run the Fair! With attendance at all historical sites down due to the economy, this is putting a severe bind on operations not only for the Trade fair but also for the Village in general.
To help generate the needed funds to keep the Trade Fair going, we would like a donation of $5 per person or $25 for a military group( the groups choice to pay the $25 or $5 each whichever is less), for those participants who are camping for the weekend. This is a donation and is not required for camping/attendance to the Fair. Please keep in mind that you will have the opportunity to have a FREE breakfast both days supplied by the Village Volunteers.

Schoenbrunn Trade Fair in 2 months!

The 2011 Schoenbrunn Trade fair is 2 months away! It's hard to believe but fall is coming faster than we want. The juried participant list is growing weekly with double the participants from last year! I'll be traveling to the Village in 2 weeks to make final preparations for the Fair, making sure the wood supply will be ready along with making sure the cabins are ready for the Vendors and participants. For those of you in the area, Schoenbrunn's fall Lantern Tour is Saturday, September 17th., starting at 7pm. Stop by in modern or period dress to spend some quite time in the Village, it's a fun night.

Keep those applications for the Fair coming in and I'll see you October 14th!
