Our 12th annual event will be April 22-23. Under the Crown and Colonial Trades Fair is a free, educational event focused on Colonial life from 1735 to 1785. It takes place at Living History Park in North Augusta.
Come learn how life and times were in this Colonial era, and watch our Colonial past come to life through demonstrations and living exhibits. Try your hand at Colonial dancing, or see if you are fit to join the militia.

Be sure to stop by and visit with the Indian traders, the baker, the potter, backwoodsmen and the tavern keeper, and visit Sutlers Row, Village Mercantile Grist Mill and New Windsor Cabinet Shop.
