Please join us for a day of historical celebration, artisan shopping and fun!

September, 8th from 12-6 pm.

Ela Township has a rich and diverse historical story to tell and celebrate dating back to the 1830s. Come listen and experience a flashback in time during our first annual, Ela Township History Day festival. Bring the family to learn about the founding pioneers of our area and the industries they began. Venture into the Civil War reenactment camp and learn about the life of a Union soldier and about the many residents of Ela Township who served in the Civil War. Hear about Seth Paine's vision for our area by our special-guest author. Dress-up and costumes are encouraged and welcome for our day of Ela township historical commemoration. There will be some free games and treats for kids.

We will have over 30 artisans in our market as well as a HUGE raffle with incredible prizes! We are so excited for the mid-19th century baseball game at 5 pm! Stay tuned for the speaker line up and the schedule of demonstrations. Stop by our free kids area to play games and make crafts.
