Dates Released for 2023 Heritage Day Events
Heritage Day is a much loved annual event and sold out on the two dates offered in 2022. We are excited to announce we have added a third date in 2023 due to the overwhelming response in 2022. Dates for 2023 include: Tuesday, April 4, Friday, April 14, and Friday, April 28. At Heritage Day, guests have the opportunity to experience life on the frontier and witness skilled demonstrators and artists. Guests will have a chance to SEE, FEEL, and TOUCH different historical trade skills such as blacksmithing, leatherworking, woodworking, working with fibers and cooking.
Heritage Day allows guests to experience the frontier at their own pace between the hours of 9:00 and 1:00 pm. The cost for all guests age 3 and older is only $8. April is also a great time to be outdoors and enjoy the park, so feel free to bring blankets and picnic on the lawn of the Bowen House or anywhere throughout Moss-Wright Park.
Heritage Day is open to the public as well as school or tour groups. For any group with 5 or more total guests, reservations are required in advance. For groups smaller than 5, reservations are encouraged. To request a reservation for your group on Heritage Days, please complete this online form and a staff member will get back with you.
If for any reason this annual event conflicts with your schedule but you would still like to bring your group to a field trip at Historic Mansker’s Station on another day, please complete this online form and let us schedule a group tour. The group field trip does not include ALL of the trade skills experienced on Heritage Days but does include a few depending upon the field trip you select. Either option will be a great experience for your group, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
