Madison Craft Days coming

44th Annual Craft Days September 6 & 7, 2008

It is that time of year again for the Madison County Historical Society's

44th Annual Craft Days! The event held on Saturday, September 6th and

Sunday, September 7th, is organized and hosted by the Madison County

Historical Society at the society's 435 Main Street location in Oneida. This

year's Craft Days will feature over 100 juried craft vendors, food, and

entertainment. Visitors can also tour the society's headquarters, Cottage

Lawn, an 1849 Gothic Revival Cottage, during the event. The Olde Tyme

Fiddlers will be returning to entertain the crowd on Saturday from 1-3 pm.

On Sunday, we are excited to have Chris Farrar and Mike Doyle performing

from 1-3 pm. As always visitors are sure to find a special hand crafted

item, a delectable treat, and great music all in one location at the 44th

Annual Craft Days at the Madison County Historical Society. Don't forget to

check out the daily demonstrations from our craft vendors. All weekend

check-out Lisa Gardiner demonstrating chair caning. On Sunday come see a

blacksmith at work. Tom Parlato will return with his forge and anvil to

entertain visitors. It's not too late to buy your raffle tickets for the

much-anticipated Madison County Sterling Silver Bicentennial Plaque drawing

on Sunday, Sept. 7th at 2 pm.

In addition, free park and ride service will be provided. Shuttle buses will

be running throughout the weekend from the Dream Catcher Plaza on Route 5 to

Cottage Lawn. Admission to the event is $3 for adults. Children 12 and

under are free. No animals are permitted on the grounds, and there is no

smoking. For more information, please contact the Madison County Historical
