Homestead Craft Village will host its 23rd annual Sorghum Festival
Labor Day Monday, September 4th.
Traditional sorghum cane pressing will begin in the morning followed by a syrup cook-off in the afternoon.
The day include ongoing horse-drawn hayrides and Make-Your-Own activities, as well as live gospel music at 12 noon. Community craftsmen will demonstrate the heritage skills of pottery, blackmithing, spinning, weaving, quilting, basketry and more throughout the day in their air-conditioned shops and at the gift Barn. Allow time to visit the restored 1760's gristmill and watch water-powered stones grind whole grains into fresh flour. Stop by the cheese shop to see fresh cheese making. Outdoor food booths will feature brick-oven pizza and fresh-cranked ice cream. Cafe Homestead will serve all day.
The Festival will be open from 9 to 5 on Labor Day.
Admission and parking are free.
