Shaker Farm Day
Have a refreshing venture in the country and step into South Union during the 1870 harvest season this weekend at the Shaker Museum’s Shaker Farm Day. During this annual living history weekend, talk with some of Kentucky’s most talented artisans as they demonstrate Shaker farm chores and craft making. See wool spun into yarn and woven into cloth, or pitch in with farm chores as you shell corn or make butter. Smell the smoke as meat is preserved and feel the warmth of bees wax as you dip candles. Hear the history of the Shakers, the songs of live musicians, and skillfully woven tales from a seasoned storyteller. Smile as you watch children playing games of old and enjoying wagon rides. Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for children. Visit www.shakermuseum.com or call 800-811-8379 for more information.
