It’s the combination of old-fashioned family orientated fun and the hard work of the volunteers that makes the Marshville Heritage Festival a must visit location for Labour Day weekend.

“It’s the family entertainment that people are looking for,” Marshville Heritage Festival Committee member Brian Heaslip said. “The people know what to expect when they come here, it’s not pushing liquor, it’s not carnival rides. It’s just old-fashioned entertainment.”

Over 400 volunteers dressed up in period costume, hands on demonstrations showing life in the pioneering days, period buildings, crafts, entertainment and food are featured all weekend long at the festival.

“This is what makes it all work for us year-after-year,” Heaslip said. “People enjoy the simplicity of the event, satisfy their curiosity about the pioneering days and they love to interact with our volunteers who love to share their knowledge about history.”

“Whether you are watching the saw mill in operation or checking out the Niagara Antique Power Association display or visiting the blacksmith shop you will see volunteers who just love to make history come alive for people,” he said.

The festival continues Sunday/Monday Sept. 2/3 2018 at the Marshville Heritage Village in Wainfleet. The hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. General admission is $6.00, children under 10 free.  For more information see the website: http://www.marshvilleheritagefestival.ca/ .
