Duvall Heritage Festival - Saturday, September 27th 2014 from 11am-5pm

" Celebrate the “good old days” by bringing the whole family to Duvall for a day of fun, learning, and reminiscing at the Duvall Heritage Festival on Sat., Sept. 27 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the historic Dougherty House and Farmstead at 26520 Cherry Valley Road in Duvall.  

Learn how the pioneers lived and worked.  Watch a blacksmith at work and a field being plowed the old fashioned way with mules.  Look at antique tractors.  Shell some corn, make cider, braid rope, churn butter, and wash clothes the old-fashioned way. 

Antique quilts will be on display in the Dougherty House, a well preserved example of a late 19thcentury farmhouse.  It was built one year prior to Washington’s statehood and once served as a territorial post office.  Guided tours include the farmhouse, a restored logging bunk house, milk house, and old tool display.  A pioneer cemetery is also located on this site.

Kick up your heels and dance to  the music of Tinker’s Dram, a contra and square dance group or rest your feet, relax, and listen to Snoqualmie Valley folk music by the Novelty Hill Ramblers, and folk music and stories by Bob Antone.  Snoqualmie Tribe's Canoe Family will also be on stage with Native American drumming.

Booths will provide information about Eastside Audubon Society, SnoValley Tilth, and the Tualco Grange.

There is fun for all ages and free admission.  Free parking is available at Holy Innocents Catholic Church just east of the Dougherty Farmstead on Cherry Valley Road.  Handicapped parking available on site.earn how the pioneers lived and worked. "
