2020 Living History Fair Update
After much discussion and consideration the History Center decided to cancel the 2020 Living History Fair due to safety concerns and the overall uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
PLEASE SAVE THE DATE for Living History Fair Saturday, July 17 and Sunday, July 18, 2021
Living history is an important part of the programming here at the History Center of Olmsted County. Living history makes history more engaging, so to bring history to life for the public each summer we hold the Living History Fair - a weekend of interactive events from the 1800's.
