    Monthly Court Days of the 19th century provided plenty of action in and out of the courtroom. Residents came from all over the county to catch up on the news and conduct business. The Court & Market Days Festival offers the same opportunities in a fun and historical atmosphere. Programs during the day recreate the mid 1860’s through children’s activities, music, dancing, artisan demonstrations, tours, and drama. Festival vendors provide plenty of opportunity for shopping and socializing.

    Now sponsored by The Heritage Museum, the Court & Market Days Festival is a rich and historical event drawing thousands of visitors each year.
