There will be old fashion craft and food demonstrations, making this a fun-filled afternoon for the whole family.

The complex has recently added a 44 foot addition to our Billy Beeman Barn with an 8 foot porch running its entire length.

A repeat feature this year includes the fantastic collection of hand made Faberge type eggs made in Empire in the 1970’s by Helen Witt. A must see!The Glen Lake Fire Dept. will also be hosting an Open House next door during the afternoon.
