Under the Crown and Colonial Trades Fair is a weekend filled with new ways to learn and experience the history of Augusta and North Augusta. The event takes place each year in April in the Living History Park (299 W. Spring Grove Ave., North Augusta, SC).
Historical re-enactments give a glimpse of the period of the American Revolution involving daily life during British occupation in Augusta – complete with the arrest and court martial of “traitors!” Eighteenth century music and entertainment, colonial dancing in the Barn, and an Anglican Church service at 10:30 on Sunday morning in the Meeting House round out other activities throughout the weekend.
In addition, The Artisan Fair is going on in conjunction with the Under the Crown event! Local and regional artists will display their artwork and have items available for sale, so come check out this FREE event!
This informational video is a lively way to see what’s going on at the Living History Park, so take a couple of minutes to watch! For more information, please visit www.colonialtimes.us.
If you enjoy festivals, consider another good one annually in the Smoky Mountains: Bloomin’ Barbeque and Bluegrass in Sevierville.
