Saturday and Sunday, July 29th & 30th, 2023

Experience life on an Early American farm through hands-on activities and exhibits at Historic Cold Spring Village’s ‘Down on the Farm’ Weekend.
Historic Cold Spring Village, an open-air living history museum, presents the trades, crafts, architecture, and lifestyles of an Early American, rural South Jersey farming community.
Special exhibits throughout the Village will include collections of antique and modern farming equipment and tools.
Visitors can tour the historic Corson-Gandy Barn, c. 1880, which is home to Levi the Village horse. Guests can visit the Village, pigs, chickens, and calves.
Children may also participate in farm chores at the agricultural barn complex throughout the day.

‘Down on the Farm’ is generously sponsored by Smeltzer & Sons Feed & Pet Supplies.

The Friends of Historic Cold Spring Village will also host the Annual Dog Show on Saturday beginning at noon at the Gazebo.
Admission to the Village is required to enter through either the Route 9 and/or Seashore Road Gatehouse.
The fee has been reduced 50% for one handler and one dog to $6.00.
Any guest with a 2022 membership is admitted free of cost.
Friends Members will be at either gate to register your pet beginning at 11.00am.
There is no fee to register this season; however, a complimentary donation would be most welcomed upon receipt of a treat and kerchief.
The show will end when all the prizes have been awarded.
