26th Annual Colonial Times: A Day to Remember
Venue or organization:
Each year, Olde Towne sponsors Colonial Times: A Day To Remember, a two-day event that draws people from all over the Southeast and beyond. The reputation of Olde Towne reenactments and living exhibits has spread beyond the limits of Aiken County.
Watch our colonial past come to life through demonstrations and living exhibits. Featured attractions include hornsmithing, pottery, a tomahawk throw, butter churning, weaving and spinning, quilting, candle making, scrimshaw, pewterer, musket firing demonstrations, calligraphy, gunsmithing, blacksmithing, woodworking, and meat smoking and curing.
Be sure to stop by and visit with the Indian traders, the Backwoodsmen, the Sutlers, the Milliner, the Tavern Keeper, the Alchemist, and pet the animals! Dance master Dana Cheney will call colonial dance on both days. Please join in and learn how to do Hole in the Wall, Christ Church Bells, Duke of Kent Waltz, and others. Dance times will be posted at the Barn.
Both Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. until closing, our special guests talk with visitors, give demonstrations and entertain throughout the day. Stop by the tavern for Games in the Tavern. Colonial Dance demonstrations will be held both days.
Be sure to visit Roger's Ordinary for lunch, snacks and refreshments.
