Join us this July at the Caboolture Historical Village for Heritage Day! Heritage Day is designed to educate and connect people to local history, demonstrate traditional methods used to build, make, bake, and create, and show the skilled art forms of craftsmen and craftswomen of yesterday. The event will also include displays of our Flora and Fauna with wildlife specialist animal rescue groups and Native Plants Queensland. Our historical village is filled with buildings full of period history and is the perfect backdrop for an event all about our local history. Defined by the period of time predating 1945 we aim to showcase vintage and veteran periods. Kids will have plenty of opportunities to get hands on and try skills and work machines of old with our special “Give it a Go” elements. Some of the featured displays and demonstrations include: • Vintage & Veteran Cars, Motorcycles • Foundry Display • Bee Keeping • Luthier (guitar maker) • Rural Fire Service Display • Rope making • Blacksmithing • Family History groups from around the Moreton Bay region • Small engine machinery • Lace Makers Guild • Animal Husbandry • Artisans Guild - Local Art Gallery display (in the Citadel) • Spinners and Weavers • Military Displays • Vintage Market – Vintage crafts and clothes, Traditional ginger beer, Steampunk paraphernalia, books, antiques stall, handmade soaps, fruit wines, old fashioned candy, and Fudge. • CWA (Stanmore Hall) – cake decorating, knitting, felting, quilting, preserves and jams. • Much more still in progress…. The event will include live entertainment in the form of both static and roving elements as well as special displays of local history to compliment the history on display in the village. To add to the atmosphere, we have invited the steampunk community to add their 18th century dress with the modern twist. Many of our exhibitors will be dressed in the style of the different periods. Entertainment includes: • Bushranger Re-enactments • Blarney Stone Celtic Band – Playing in the hotel. • Belswagger Morris Dancers – roving performances • Dance Kaleidoscope (18th century country dance in costume) – roving performances • North Pine Bush Poets – between band sets at the hotel • "The Serene's" harpists playing in St. Lawrence Church. • Mini Allstars – Miniature horse trick show and whip cracking demonstrations • Scent Dog Search and Rescue demonstration • Grand Parade at 12pm and Vintage parade at 3pm This is sure to be an amazing day with so much to see and do you won’t know where to start.
