5th Annual Colonial Faire at Riley’s Farm Promises Fun for All on Muster Day

By on July 1, 2019

Hear ye, hear ye! The annual Colonial Faire returns to Riley’s Farm the first week of July and promises to be a fun-filled day for all in attendance. Oak Glen will come alive with a bustling New England village for three days and will include interactive dramatic presentations, swordplay demonstrations and duels of honor, music and theatre, old-fashioned games, hands-on activities and classic sports like tomahawk throwing and archery (for ages 8 years and above), colonial crafts like candle dipping and weaving, and unique shopping with local artisans.

The 5th Annual Colonial Faire will also include culinary delights so bring your appetite with you! Hawk’s Head Publick House serves hearty country comfort cuisine, fine wines, ales, and hard ciders. Riley’s Farm’s famous on-site bakery will be crafting plenty of five-pound apple pies and seasonal pastries that are worth the trip to Oak Glen by themselves!

Entertainment includes muster day activities. People from all walks of life — trappers, riflemen, townsfolk and craftsmen their place alongside the Northumberland County Riflemen to fight for freedom against the British Regulars and the Fourth “King’s Own” of Foot.  You’ll have the opportunity to meet the prominent figures of the township — and don’t hesitate to interact with them! Who knows – they may try to recruit you to defeat the British!
