Is anyone going to this Festival this year? (July, 2011) A small group of us from Nebraska are talking about taking a road trip to Kentucky and checking it out. I'd love to put some faces to the names I'm so familiar with here!
I'm hoping to attend!!! It all depends on a few family related events around that same time. I'm just about finished with a new dress made of a super sheer cotton batiste which is completely handsewn! I just might need some lovely accessories to take it from lovely daywear to elegant evening wear!

Oh I seem to have missed this thread!
Miss Waterman and my daughters and I shall all be in attendance at the fair to be held this present year. I shall be in residence in the stone walled quarters beside the house that acted as my office last year.
I shall be engaged in medical demonstrations throughout the weekend as well as taking my fencing exercise in the morning with Captain Cushing and taking the occasional nature walk to collects plants and beasts to examine from the grounds of the estate.
Please feel free to stop in a pay me a visit at the office, even if you are not plagued by illness or injury, I will be quite pleased to meet you! And should you be so unfortunate to be grievously sick or injured, be mindful that I charge very reasonable rates.

it's pretty large i heard they had about 2000 visitors last year. not sure if that number is correct though. it's in a very nice spot a large old plantation, you can tour the house and grounds and there is a program of speakers and a fashion show. also a couple of vendors who sell period clothing and accessories as well as books and tea.
