The Village comes alive with the lost sounds and sights of 19th-century popular music and art as more than 50 singers, dancers, musicians, and artists perform and demonstrate. See the full daily schedules for Saturday and Sunday.

Music

See antique instruments from the Village collection that are rarely on display, including a church bass which has not been displayed for several years. Learn about the history of black spirituals and see them performed. See fife and drum music performed. Learn how to play a tin whistle.

Art

Meet a 19th-century itinerant artist and watch (or participate!) as he instructs an Art Salon (Saturday). See demonstrations of 19th-century watercolors, theorem painting, and sketching. Try your hand at marbling paper.

Photography

Member-Only photography tour at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Get some great shots of the Village before it opens to the general public.
