Events & Activities

Fun for Everyone!

Welcome home to Arthurdale!

Come enjoy a day of food, arts & crafts, living history, music, activities, and more with your friends and family at the New Deal Festival as we celebrate 88 years of Arthurdale!

Please note that the information linked here is subject to change as we update our website for the 2022 New Deal Festival. The information below is from 2020.

We have a wonderful lineup of local blues, country, and folk music that will be playing on the Center Hall front porch.

The five buildings that make up the New Deal Homestead Museum will be open during the Festival. Visit the feedsack exhibit in the historic E-15 homestead. See our newly redone Esso garage bay. Take a peek at buttons and posters from FDR’s presidential campaigns that are part of the Fratkin Collection. Or meet the children of original homesteaders and talk to them about what it was like growing up in Arthurdale.

Check under the hood of all your favorite old cars from classic cars from the 30’s and 40’s to 60’s muscle cars.  There will be a wide variety of cars, tractors, and trucks.

There will be lots of fun and games at the Kids’ Activity Area next to E-15.  Play a game of cornhole, meet wild birds, and pet goats & other adorable animals at the Farm Petting Zoo. Get your face painted from 11 – 2!

There will also be horse-drawn wagon and hay rides around Arthurdale that the whole family can enjoy.

Buy handmade, local crafts and see artisan demonstrations.

If you have questions, please contact us! Looking forward to seeing you on July 14th!
