History on Tap

Taste of the Past

Experience some gastronomical history! As you stroll through Prairietown, don’t miss the chance to sample one of George Washington’s favorite nips – Cherry Bounce, made with local West Fork Whiskey! Hungry? Get a nibble of laugenbrezel – historical pretzel bites! Both samples available at the Golden Eagle Inn. And when you need a refresher, drop by Dr. Campbell’s house for a sample of (non-alcoholic) Raspberry Lemon Balm Shrub – like oldy-timey hydration drink!

Come Hungry!

We’ll have a wide variety of food available, so plan on joining us for dinner.

Truck locations will be available through the map accessible on site through a QR code during the festival.

Tap into sounds of the festival

Enjoy a live DJ at Featherston Barn, revisit the 90s with Lisa Frank and the Trapper Keepers in the Junction, and vibe with the awesome Americana sounds of Old Coyote in Prairietown.
