Pioneer Day at Waterloo Farm Museum

Take your family to celebrate life on a 19th century farm with farm tours, live music, and demonstrations of crafts, trades, and traditional cooking methods of the past during  the Waterloo Historical Society Farm Day. On Sunday, October 9 from noon-5:00 p.m. at the Waterloo Farm Museum and the Dewey School Museum (13493 Waterloo Munith Rd., Grass Lake) families will be treated to demonstrations that will bring history alive!
  • Demonstrations of traditional tasks like spinning, dressmaking, weaving and quilting,
  • Exhibits of farm tools used for chores such as corn husking and shelling, cider pressing, and sauerkraut making.
  • See how the family lived while smelling the preparations of Sunday dinner.
  • Try out stilt-walking or other outdoor games.
  • Musicians playing
  • Horse-drawn wagon rides
  • Craftspeople demonstrating and selling their wares
  • Farm goods, jams, preserves, apple butter and delicious snacks and treats for sale
Think all of that will make you hungry? Don't worry, mom and dad can treat the kids to a farm cooked treat savoring some Waterloo Bean Soup! So whether your taste runs to primitive folk art, woven goods, or wildlife art, you'll find demonstrators with their wares for sale for gift giving or receiving.

Event admission is $5/adults and $2/children aged 5-12, children 5 and under receive free event admission.
