2013 Autumn in Austerlitz Festival

The 2013 Autumn in Austerlitz Festival was held on Sunday October 13th from 11am to 4pm.  (Always the Sunday before Columbus Day – Rain or Shine) With attendance averaging at over 750, the event features volunteers dressed in early 1830’s costumes, antiques, live music and entertainment for children, many different vendors and a variety of hot and cold foods to satisfy your hunger.

Ampersand is our featured musical performance at Autumn in Austerlitz. Their website, Ampersand.org describes themselves as “A family-friendly, upbeat musical group that soars with tight vocal harmonies, backed by the driving, chunky sound of traditional instruments.” Come listen for yourself!

 

Autumn in Austerlitz began in 1997 as a home grown festival to raise money for the Austerlitz Historical Society and the society’s ambitious project: to create a living history museum in the town of Austerlitz which would depict life in the 1830s, and a center for historical investigation for Austerlitz Town History.

2008 Blueberry Festival

Click here to read about our Blueberry Recipe Contest.

The Blueberry Festival is always held the last Sunday in July – this year the Festival was held on Sunday, July 27, 2008 on the grounds of Old Austerlitz from 9am-4pm.

Early 19th century craft demonstrations & wares, live music and of course – lots of blueberries!

Adults $6.00
Children under 12 free

The event will feature early 19th Century craft demonstrations and wares, antiques, live music and entertainment for children, many different vendors and a variety of foods to feed the masses. There will be blueberries galore, a blueberry recipe contest, and a blueberry pancake breakfast (please note that there is an additional charge for both adults and children).

Blueberry Pancake Breakfast
Adults $6.00
Children $3.00

We all love our pets … but due to insurance concerns we ask that you make arrangements for attending the Blueberry Festival without your pet. Thank you for your consideration in this regard.
