Experience Bygone Days At Cedar Valley Settlers Celebration And Music Festival In Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation

Come out and celebrate the life of Northeast Ohio's early settlers and enjoy live bluegrass music at the Cedar Valley Settlers Celebration and Music Festival on Sunday, September 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Ohio's frontier days at this free festival located at the Frostville Museum and adjacent Apple Field in Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket and listen to live music all afternoon. Enjoy folk and Americana music by Mike Gorrell beginning at 11:30 a.m., Border Ride performs at 1 p.m. and headliner Dale Ann Bradley takes the stage from 3 - 5 p.m. Bradley is a five time winner of the "Female Vocalist of the Year" award by the International Bluegrass Music Association.

Spend the day discovering what life was like for an Ohio pioneer. Try candle making, rug braiding, stenciling and rope making. Learn how children made their own toys by making a cup and ball toy and "buzz saw craft." Pioneer children would take a "tree cookie" and thread a string through it. By spinning the tree cookie on the string, it would make a "buzz" sound.

Find out what types of activities pioneers did for fun and entertainment. Listen to a tall tale in the storytelling tent, watch a performance by a colonial magician, and join in a contra dancing lesson (a style of partnered folk dancing) led by local contra dance band, Mud in Yer Eye. Watch in amazement as members of the Ohio Wheelmen ride high wheel bicycles from the late 1800s.

See how apple butter and apple cider were made long ago and enjoy samples, too. Watch ongoing pioneer cooking demonstrations and find out what's cooking over an open fire whether it's soup, corn bread or other tasty treats. Learn how pioneers lived at the Frontier Encampment and kids can help raise (and tear down) a barn.

Explore the Frostville Museum historic village and experience the living history of 19th century Ohio. The museum consists of six historic buildings including: Prechtel House, Jenkins Cabin, Briggs House, Carpenter House, Stearns Carriage House and Frostville Village Church.
