Notice is herewith given that a Market Fair shall be held at the grounds designated as the seat of Major William Croghan, known as Locust Grove, six miles up-river from the Falls of the Ohio. You are invited to join with Locust Grove and the Illinois Regiment of Virginia as we bring the spirit of the past alive with the Market Fair.
You can participate in 18th century-style entertainment, purchase replicas of 18th century military and household items, enjoy food and drink as our founders did, and meet and converse with early Americans.
Mock battles for our country’s independence feature General George Rogers Clark’s own militia, the Illinois regiment, as well as British Dragoons and Marines, and German Hessians. Native Americans will be present as well – whose side will they be on this year?
Concessions are available.
