"An Old Fashioned Sunday in Autumn"
September 15 11:00 AM Artisans at the Dahmen Barn, Uniontown, WA. Website
Many activities are planned for lovers of antiques, and attendees may purchase home made ice cream along with apple pie from the contest. Enjoy live music by the Snake River Six and the exhibit of quilts by the Palouse Patchers with the theme of "Elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water". New this year is a kids' corner with fun activities for youngsters.
The yard behind the wheel fence will be filled with artists and craftspeople demonstrating and selling what they create, and live alpacas will be on display along with items handmade from their fiber. Fresh, local produce will be available and the Uniontown Deli will have lunch items and drinks for sale.
Local wines wrapped in local art will be the silent auction at this event. Our resident artists are really excited about creating containers in various mediums to envelope bottles of wine that has been donated by local wineries from the Moscow-Pullman area and the Lewis-Clark Valley.
A "Name the Cow" contest will culminate at the close of this event. The cow is the new larger-than-life metal sculpture that will be installed soon near the highway. Watch the home page at www.artisanbarn.org for details on the naming contest.
