What we'll have: a great collection of artisans with old-fashioned skills - weaving, spinning, pottery, felting, soapmaking, paper making, a blacksmith, tatting, wooden musical instruments, oh goodness - so much more.
Also buskers and live entertainment - magic, music, games in the Village Green, snacks and drinks, live demos, portraits, and a petting zoo.
It's a great day trip, but if you live a little ways away - there are 3 cities within a 20 minute drive with plenty of hotels to make it a weekend trip. There are buckets of waterfalls to visit and it's not far from the African Lion Safari. There's also camping nearby.
PS: I'm the one standing up. It will be in print sometime soon.
