23RD Annual Covered Bridge Bike Tour, Sunday. Registration-Open 7:00AM.
This summer, we invite you to support the Fallasburg Historical Society as we partner with The Kent County Parks Foundation. KCPF is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to preserving open spaces, and enhancing parks, and trails throughout Kent County, so that everyone has access to these special green spaces. Fallasburg Park was opened in 1928, and is one of the most beloved parks in our region. The park has expanded numerous times to meet the needs of the growing community that surrounds it. This joint event will feature heritage games for the whole family and tours of the village in the afternoon. Later in the evening a seated dinner and contra dance will take place featuring local music, food, and beer. Proceeds from the event will be shared by both nonprofit organizations to continue their work in preserving the legacy of Fallasburg Village and Park.
Explore Historic Fallasburg Village on Fall Festival of the Arts weekend by venturing just across the Covered Bridge from Fallasburg Park and take a step back in time. Come browse our old-fashioned Bazaar of artisans and their crafts. Stroll our village and visit our museums; the Schoolhouse, the Fallas House, and the Misner House both weekend days. On Saturday only, the Fallassburgh Flats, our 1860’s Vintage Base Ball Club will culminate their season by hosting their annual Fall Finale, The John Wesley Fallass Invitational Vintage Base Ball Tournament in Fallas Field across from the school. Games begin at 10:00AM, with a break for lunch, and continue in the afternoon. Contact Michelle Emaus – 616-648-0048 for more information.
