Artisans and craftspeople from Wisconsin and across the Midwest display and sell their wares at one of the most popular and longstanding fairs of its kind in eastern Wisconsin. There is something for everyone: baskets, grapevine wreaths, oil paintings, country crafts, ornaments, toys, dolls, teddy bears, handmade lace, jewelry, dried flowers, furniture, wooden bowls, rugs and much more may be available. Enjoy wonderful crafts and delicious food amid the lovely wooded grounds of Wade House.
: For this special event only, special admission is $5 per person (children under 17 are free). Horse-drawn transportation on the site included in the ticket cost.
: Wade House, an 1860s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years. In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
