The Crossroads Museum will host two days of activities with traditional artisans, reenactors, period music and other activities for the annual Heritage Festival next weekend, Oct. 26-27.

Formerly held on the grounds of the Verandah-Curlee House, the festival is in its 17th year and its second year on the museum grounds.

The museum is seeking artisans and vendors to get involved in the event, which is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Museum Director Brandy Steen said the event is both an educational tool and a market for artisanal crafts.

“Hundreds of area school children will attend the festival’s first day of events to learn about Corinth’s history,” she said. “Visitors will learn about the people and traditions that helped shape the Crossroads area of yesterday.”

Artisans confirmed to appear will demonstate broom making, candle and soap making, pottery and other crafts.

Lost Cause will perform period music.

Both festival days are open to the public and admission is free. There is no charge for artisans to demonstrate and sell items, but there is a small fee for those who chose to only sell.
