The weekend will feature the second annual Citizens of Hale Plant Sale. Many heirloom plant and herb varietals with significance to Northeast Ohio will be offered along with unique perennials.
The citizens plant sale will run both Saturday and Sunday during regular festival hours. Proceeds from the plant sale support on-site garden and preservation projects.
During the festival, the 19th century village is open to explore local history and experience a working farm complete with sheep, oxen and chickens. Regional historic crafts and trades are demonstrated throughout the day including glassblowing, blacksmithing, spinning and weaving.
