These history-and-art-based street festivals are held the second Sunday of each month, June through September, from 2:00 – 5:00 PM. The season has ended for 2022; the season will resume in June of 2023. The historic Village of Palmyra, with the Old Stone Jail Museum, historic Courthouse, and historical society archives at Maggie’s House are always the central feature of these events. Tours are offered of the Old Stone Jail Museum and historic Courthouse, and a walking tour of the Village of Palmyra is available as well. Local artists and craftspeople are there with a variety of creative offerings for visitors to purchase. Volunteer genealogists are at Maggie’s House, to help people with their family research. Nearby, Holland Page Place Museum – our 1865 agricultural log cabin – is also open for tours.
There is also always a focus on a second site in the county. In the past, such sites have included the Town of Columbia, the churches at Wilmington, and heritage craft and life demonstrations at Holland Page Place Museum.
