History buffs rub elbows with area farmers, children learn how to play hoop and stick while mothers shop for local produce. Take part in the scene when Court & Market Days Festival returns this Saturday, June 5 for its fifth year. Events will take place at the Turner Pavilion from 9am to 2pm and are free and open to the public.
You are invited to take a trip back in time, learn about the history and heritage of yesteryear as well as appreciate the amazing bounty of today. Enjoy live music, skits by reenactors, covered wagon rides, lectures and demonstrations from local artisans and historians. Just for the kids, a special passport serves as a guide to history, leading the way through children-focused exhibits and activities.
Not to be missed, the play Dog Days at the Town Council by Roger A. Hall will take place in the Harrisonburg City Council Chambers at 11am and again at 1pm. The humorous account of Harrisonburg City Council in the 1850s is directed by Susan Comfort and produced by The Playhouse.
