By on June 18, 2020

Looking for a way to celebrate the 4th of July that the whole family can enjoy? Then, head up to Oak Glen and be transported to New England in the 1800s. Experience activities, food, games and demonstrations of a time gone by.

Riley’s Farm annual Colonial Faire is an interactive cultural event aimed at entertaining and educating the public about life in the American colonies in the late 18th century!  Entertainment for the whole family abounds with dramatic theatre, swordplay demonstrations and duels of honor, music and dancing, tomahawk throwing and archery, colonial crafts like candle dipping and corn husk doll making, and unique shopping with local artisans and colonial settlers. Don’t miss the Mountain fife and drum corps on Saturday, July 4.

While Hawk’s Head Public House will not be open, many of your favorite dishes will be served  from the bakery window. Or enjoy fine wines, draft beer, and hard ciders in the ale garden. Riley’s Farm’s famous on-site bakery will also be serving plenty of five-pound apple pies and seasonal pastries.

Prices for a day of colonial fun is $15 for adults and $12 for children ages 3-12. Admission includes all entertainment: the swordplay demonstrations and duels of honor, music, interactive living history exhibits and shows, craft demonstrations, farm animal interactions, and colonial games.
