Event Details

Saturday, January 8, 2022

  • Living History – 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. We have a timeline for demonstrations coming soon. Dance Practice at 1:00 pm
  • New Year’s Dance and Social – Light meal and social starts at 6 p.m., followed by the dance.

You can come out just for the day or stay for the 10th Anniversary of our New Year’s Dance and Social.

  • Day Pass – Demonstrations during the day include period dancing, blacksmithing, family life, who wore what, mountain men skills and much more. There will be a timeline of sorts ranging from the colonial period to 1865. Demonstrators will have items available for sale and there will be an opportunity to purchase snacks. You can mill around and visit at your own pace as well as follow the schedule for demonstrations scheduled for certain time slots. If you’re only coming out for the day, you will pay at the gate.
  • New Year’s Dance and Social – Come out to the living history during the day and then dress up for our evening dance and enjoy the music and fellowship with us. Light meal is included. If you can only make the Dance and Social that’s good too. We would love to see you! (More details under Guest Registration. Be sure to register for the event in advance.)


Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, Texas. This is a wonderful, family friendly environment and perfect for our event. If you need overnight accommodations you will want to make your reservations with the park. (If you are reenactor/demonstrator in a canvas tent, you will make other arrangements.)

  1. I would like some information on the dress maker who was at this event. I was told she had a Facebook page, and thought maybe I could order something I saw in the “shop.”

    1. Hi Martha! Awesome! Looks like you’re on the email list for updates since you subscribed. I will email you to see if you have any questions.

    1. Hi Martha! We will be updating this page soon. We are working through a few things first to make sure we will be providing accurate information. Looks like we will have a schedule of events to include some dancing during the day as well as different demonstrations as usual. We also plan to have food available for sale this year and will be having a dance in the evening for the demonstrators as well as those guests that would attend in period dress. This will all take place on January 8, 2022. Looks like you have subscribed to updates on Living History events. So, as soon as we have more information available you will receive an email.
