The Hydref – a Fall Festival and Market Faire, will be held Saturday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Depreciation Lands Museum.

Meet skilled 18th century crafts people, re-enactors, and “sutlers.” Enjoy entertainment, demonstrations, live music, food and activities for the children.

There will be a children’s contest. Make an Apple Head doll at home and bring it to Hydref for the Best Apple Head Contest. Awards will be in two categories, ages 5-9 and 10-17.

Hydref, which means “autumn” in Welsh, was named to commemorate the Welsh heritage of early settlers.
