Jerseyville This Weekend!

Just wanted to remind everyone about the Jerseyville (Illinois) Victorian Festival this weekend. Saturday, Sunday & Monday will be full of fun & music! This is a Civil War Re-enactment, complete with live demonstrations, stage coach robbery, canons, horses, bluegrass & folk music, a Civil War-era style show & the Gettysburg Address. It is awesome! You can even tour the Fulkerson Mansion at the Hazel Dell Farm (where the festival is located). There are seamstresses, blacksmiths, re-enactors including their tents & campsites, gunsmiths, instrument makers, and various food makers & food vendors. You can buy period apparel, children's toys, leather goods, and way more stuff than I can remember to mention. Click here to view their website.

Come see The Chris Talley Trio playing live on the back porch of the Fulkerson Mansion all three days from 1:30 - 5:00 p.m.! The Pickin' Chicks are going to play a little bit on Saturday afternoon around 2:00 p.m. You don't want to miss this!
