Beall Woods Olde Tyme Arts and Krafts Fair

May 6, 2023 @ 8:00 AM - May 7, 2023 @ 5:00 PM CDT


Re live history at Beall Woods State Park!  This is our 2nd annual event with focus on early settler period 1810’s, but not exclusive… all re-enactors are welcome!  We are looking for more demonstrators and craft vendors.  Food trucks will be on site.  Beall Woods is a beautiful old growth forest preserve with hiking trails and a fishing pond.  Because it is sensitive environment, no black powder is allowed.
