Bentonsport Heritage Day July 17, 2021
Heritage Day is held annually in Bentonsport during the summer. This one day event features free covered wagon rides that stop at some of Bentonsport's historic buildings where wagon riders meet several 1850s characters who share a glimpse of what life was like in Bentonsport.
Other activities include meeting artisans who share how crafts and works of art popular in the 1850s were made. Games of the era are available to play in the riverside park, including croquet and stilt walking. Lunch is available from vendors. The Bentonsport shopkeepers offer a prize drawing for a basket of items from their inventories. Musicians perform at various locations in the village throughout the day. There are also museums to visit, including the Indian Artifact Museum and the Odd Fellows Museum.
Each year guest performers or collectors demonstrate and teach activities enjoyed by 1850s villagers.
