This year parking will be available at Alpha School with shuttle service between the school and the museum.
Proceeds benefit the museum’s collections acquisition fund. The menu features staples such as Iroquois stew, Bourbon beans, posole, and cornbread as well as a variety of wild game dishes, traditional apple crisp, pies, and drinks. New this year will be Brunswick stew and turkey. The Feast of the Hunter’s Moon, signaling the beginning of hunting season during fur trade times, was marked by the first full moon after the harvest moon.
