The tradition of Mountain Craft Days continues as the Somerset Historical Center brings you more of your favorites - traditional crafts, country food, music, and children's activities.

There is something for all ages and all levels of interest in history and crafts. More than 100 craft booths and a dozen outdoor performance sites, all within walking distance of each other, offer visitors a wonderful medley of demonstrations, music, and food.

The styles range from crafts for everyday living, such as items made from natural materials, to unique one-of-a-kind collectors' items. You'll find coopers crafting casks from wooden staves and blacksmiths hammering red-hot iron. Spinners, dyers, and weavers transform wool and flax into fanciful fabrics. Children demonstrate their contributions to the family's life with butter churning and ginger cake baking.

Visitors also enjoy a variety of delicious Somerset County foods such as potpie, apple dumplings, fried cornmeal mush, and other homemade delicacies from old family recipes.

Our visitors come back year after year. If you've never visited Mountain Craft Days, come see what you've been missing!
