DIY History & Ice Cream Summer Fun Festival

July 20 @ 10:00 am - July 21 @ 3:00 pm EDT

$5.00 – $15.00


Join West Overton Museums and our neighbors, Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Association, for a weekend of historic activities, music, demonstrations, crafts, and food. An antique tractor will offer free wagon rides between the two sites.

What can you do at West Overton?

Watch Demonstrations. Do It Yourself!

DIY History gives you the opportunity to touch, smell, and even taste parts of the past. Experience changes in technology as you wash linens the old fashioned way; discover the science of churning cream into butter as you shake your own churn; learn about the ingredients of gun powder as you cast your own lead bullet; and play games from 150 years ago. You can also test your wit with our village-wide scavenger hunt game, Clued-In. The World War II exhibit will also be open in the Distillery Museum.

Admission to the activities at West Overton is $5 individual, or $15 for the whole family. Purchase tickets below or at the door. West Overton will be open 10am-3pm on both days of the event.

Stop in at the Overholt Homestead to pick up your activity passport. After having your passport stamped at each activity and at the demonstrations at Fort Allen, you can turn it in for free ice cream at Fort Allen.

What can you do at Fort Allen?

Visit our neighbors at Fort Allen Antique Farm Equipment Association, 911 Porter Ave., Scottdale, for a taste of historic farm life. You can enjoy homemade ice cream, live music, an antique tractor parade, and more. Visit the blacksmith shop to talk to smiths about their craft and watch them in action. Start Christmas shopping at a craft and vendor show. There will also be a basket raffle to benefit Children’s Hospital and multiple running displays. See the program below for the complete schedule.

Start at either site and catch the wagon to visit the other!
