Come to the award-winning Second Annual Poplar Hill Mansion Festival as we celebrate the Federal Period history of Salisbury! The day long festival will include War of 1812 re-enactors: Chesapeake Independent Blues, spinning demonstrations, music and dancing of the Federal period, and 4-H crafts and archery demonstrations. There will also be a tented Market Square with vendors selling and/or demonstrating arts and trades reminiscent of the Federal Period. Food trucks will be available. Also join community leaders and elected officials in helping raise money for the Friends of Poplar Hill Mansion as they scramble to raise money to be kept from having to go into the stocks! It’s sure to be a fun filled day! Tours of Poplar Hill Mansion will also be available throughout the day and volunteers will be wearing period dress.
This is a FREE event with parking located in the Bethesda Methodist Church parking lot on the corner of Division St. and Isabella St. in the Newtown Neighborhood.
This event is being held in conjunction with the Charles Chipman Center’s Juneteenth Celebration.
