posted in: News | 2

This year’s Fall Heritage Festival at Homeplace on Green river will feature both some new activities and continuation of the most popular activities from prior years. New activities include a new, easier, well-marked trail to the cave and springs, a pedal tractor pull for the youngsters and new demonstrations and exhibits including horse therapy, renewable energy exhibits and corn toss games.  The barrel train, petting zoo, pony rides, games for kids, food vendors and large arts and crafts sale and demonstrations will return for this years festival.  There will also be live music throughout the day with vocal and instrumental groups popular last year returning for another gig.

There will also be a photography workshop at no charge led again this year by Professor David Goguen from Lindsey Wilson College.  Goguen is also an Adair County representative on the Board of Directors.  If you are interested in attending this workshop please contact Professor Goguen at or call him at  (270) 384-8241.

The annual Homeplace Heritage Festival showcases the farm and its many benefits.  Homeplace is open all year for hiking, picnics, organized group meetings and also offers many opportunities for artists and photographers.  Homeplace also offers opportunity for those interested in community service.  It is entirely managed and staffed by volunteers, and there’s always need for help in a variety of ways.
