The Boothbay Railway Village invites families to celebrate the bounty of autumn at an old-fashioned, family-friendly festival on Saturday & Sunday, October 3 & 4.
Perfect for families who want an alternative to the big fairs and commercial midways, there will be displays of antique tractors, barrel train rides, farm animals and much more.
Watch a butter churning demonstration and then taste the fresh butter on New England brown bread baked according to a 100 year old recipe. See how Dutch ovens were used for baking and cooking over open fires and in hearths. There will also be complimentary cider and homemade cookies.
Visitors can say hello to the Museum’s pair of resident goats as well as some special guests. Local farmers will be bringing barnyard animals like sheep and chickens. You’ll be able to meet the farmers and learn about how they take care of the animals today as well as what it would have been like to keep animals for families living in Maine villages historically.
Guests are invited to take a hayride to a pumpkin patch where for a small additional fee you can take home your own pumpkin. A decorating station will also be provided.
$10 adults, $5 children 3 - 18, Museum Members and children under 3 are Free
