2012 Schoenbrunn Trade Fair web site updated!

Here is a view from the Museum down the left side of the Village. Walk down the main road past these camps and you will find Vendor's, food, cabins filled with more Vendor's and re enactors portraying 18th century life in the Village. Planning for next year has begun, the web site, has been updated and will continue to be updated thru the year. If you have been juried for our event, simply email me later in 2012 to say you will be attending and your all set. Those who have not been juried, either Vendor's or re enactors, you will need to fill out your application and submit with photos to me no later than September 30, 2012. All the necessary information on the process is on our web site.
There is plenty of room for camping and for Vendor's. We will be running another raffle for operation of the Trade Fair so look for detail early next year on our web site. We will be downliading photos of this year's Fair on the web site soon as well so check it out often. Thanks for stopping by!

2011 Trade Fair a huge success!

Well, the Trade Fair is over for another year and it was a huge success. Sunny weather all weekend, with some wind but no storms. Participation was up 60% over last year! The public really loved the event and I hope everyone had a wonderful time. Special thanks go out to Greg and Marianne Leopold who made sure we had enough wood and their food was fantastic! A BIG thanks you to Mark Cory for handling the musket demonstrations both days and to all his "militia" for dirtying their guns for the public's enjoyment! Special thanks to Greg Sandor who helped round up the militia for the demo's and doing demo's on the side for the public.
Thanks to all the Vendor's who came out and I hope to see them all back next year. Of course, thanks to the staff of the Village and the volunteers who, without them, the Fair could not be held. The breakfasts were great and their cooperation immense.

Next year's Fair is already being planned. October 20 and 21, 2012! Get it on your calendar now and come back for updates as they unfold. Have a wonderful holiday season.
