Plan now for a day of good family fun. All activities are free of charge. Food and vendor items will be available for purchase on the grounds. Many old favorites will be returning to the craft fair like beekeeping & honey, flint knapping, spinning & weaving, crocheting, timber framing, gold mining, butter churning, and fireplace stew. Kids can participate in fun activities like the treasure hunt in the hay, railroad rides, and rocket launching. Pony rides with the Fleshner's will be here once again, along with The Barn Stahl Petting Zoo, from Wellsburg.

"On the 8th Day" is the Chuck Frietag print that will be raffled this year. Raffle tickets will be available at the Pioneer Craft Fair event or can be purchased in advance by calling (319) 345-2688. The drawing will be held at 4 p.m. the day of the Craft Fair, winner need not be present to win.

You won't go away hungry if you visit the Farmers Market area, as well as, the popular lunch stand in the Heritage Center, which will be offering their selection of sandwiches, chips, drinks, and more. Visit the log cabin for the fireplace-cooked stew and the opportunity to sample fresh-churned butter.

Out at the wildlife area, north of town, will be the Buckskinner camp. Busses will load in Morrison to take visitors to and from the activities happening there, please note that no drive in access to the area is permitted. You can take a ride on the horse drawn trolley to the camp.

The Pioneer Craft Fair event is co-sponsored by Historical Collections of Grundy County and the Grundy County Conservation Board.

Exhibits in the Museum Building and Ag Hall/Heritage Center, as well as the Gift Shop, will be open throughout the day for your enjoyment.
