Homeplace on Green River Fall Heritage Festival
Family day of games, crafts, live music, food vendors and fun.
The 2015 Fall Heritage Festival at Homeplace on Green River will be Saturday, September 12, from 9:00 until 4:00 EDT. This year’s Festival will feature both new activities and continuation of the most popular events from prior years. As in the past the festival will be family oriented.
Live music will be on-going throughout the day. The 2014 Festival featured a trio featuring Lindsey Wilson College Music Instructor Wansoo Cho, Saelim Henderson, violin/fiddle and Hana Park, piano; The Exie Bluegrass Boys; Gospel singer Sharon Payne; Neal Sneed and the Dream Depot Singers; The Voices of Praise and singer-song writer Chris Anderson. The music program for the 2015 festival has not yet been set but should be equally as diversified and entertaining.
Activities will include a barrel train, hay and pony rides, games and contests for kids and adults, Arts and crafts sales and exhibits, demonstrations and food vendors.
There will be morning and afternoon photography workshops led by Lindsey Wilson Journalism Professor David Goguen again this year. They are open to all ages and there is no charge.
The Festival includes five miles of well-marked walking trails traversing the restored Blue Heron Wetlands, meandering streams, forest and prairie environments. Beaver, otter, deer and a number of other animals and birds may be seen along the trails.
The annual Homeplace Heritage Festival showcases the farm and its many benefits. Homeplace is an outdoor classroom open year around for hiking, picnics, bird watching and other outdoor activities. The farm offers many opportunities for artists and photographers. Homeplace is located at 5807 New Columbia Rd. (Highway 55) between Columbia and Campbellsville and is a joint operation of Adair, Green and Taylor counties. It has no paid staff and depends on volunteers interested in community service.
