Bishop Hill’s annual 19th century harvest festival Jordbruksdagarna (pronounced yord-brooks-DAH-ga-na) will take place Saturday September 23 and Sunday September 24, 2023. As always, there will be a variety of traditional craft demonstrations, food, vendors, and hands-on activities for the children during the 51st Jordbruksdagarna (Swedish for “earth work days”) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Demonstrations, hands-on activities, play, and music are all free.
Mike and Lisa Templeton will be performing behind the Bjorklund Hotel from 1 to 3 p.m. on September 23 and 24. They play a mix of bluegrass and old-time styles that will get your feet a stomping. Their musical performance is free and open to the public. Seating will be provided.
