We invite you to take part in the 2nd Annual Hudson Valley Heritage Fair! This year's theme is "Hidden Spaces," highlighting the physical spaces, collections, and stories that are not usually publicly accessible.
While the fair is open to the public, the primary focus is encouraging networking and collaboration between historic sites, museums, and local history organizations across our nine-county Path Through History Region. The fair will take place in Locust Grove Estate's West Gallery. Exhibitors will have access to one table, with tables lengths varying between 4 and 6 feet long. Some round tables are available for static exhibits. Staffed exhibits will receive priority for space. Living history organizations are encouraged to plan to be outside on the back lawn adjacent to the gallery if weather permits.
A networking event open to all members of the region's history community will take place from 5:30-7 PM in the adjacent gallery space at Locust Grove Estate. Registration for this networking event will take place separately and does not require exhibiting at the Heritage Fair. Please be sure to watch your email for more information about the networking event.
Because of limited space, the Path Through History workgroup will review all applications and select those that best fit the 2016 fair's theme. Please contact Path Through History workgroup chair Will Tatum with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you'll join us!
