The annual Port Oneida Fair takes place every year on the 2nd weekend of August in the Port Oneida District of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. That’s this weekend (Aug 13 & 14, 2010). The event is a celebration of rural arts and culture and features exhibits and demonstrations at five farms and the Port Oneida Schoolhouse.
With demonstrations of Native American and pioneer crafts like basket weaving, quilting and weaving, techniques of farming, barn building and blacksmithing, antique cars and bicycles, music, nature hikes and all kinds of activities for kids, this event simply cannot be beat as a way to learn about what life was like in Leelanau.
