Arthurdale was founded in 1933 as the nation's first New Deal Subsistence Homestead Community, and will host the New Deal Festival beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
The festival will allow patrons to step back in time to 1933 and will feature artisan demonstrations, historic re-enactors, museum tours, a craft market, antique car show, live music, homemade food and children's activities.
The New Deal Festival celebrates the unique history of Arthurdale and guests can visit Eleanor Roosevelt's 'Little Village' with specialty tour options. Guests may climb aboard a horse-drawn wagon and travel through Arthurdale for an in-depth look at the history of the community. An old-fashioned hayride is another option. Tickets for these specialty tours are available that day at the loading area.
Online tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children. Gate tickets are $8 for adults, and $5 for children. Children under 5 are admitted free.
