Vintage Dad's Day
Come out and celebrate the dad in your life with a day of baseball, cars, tools, antiques, great food and live music!
Vintage Baseball | 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
Enjoy baseball as it was played in the 1860s with this exciting match-up between the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings and the Bluegrass Barons.
Both teams will wear period-reproduction uniforms and use period-reproduction equipment while following baseball rules from the late-19th century. Discover the origins of America’s pastime and how much the game has changed in the last 150 years.
Bring your own lawn chair, and we'll provide the shade tree.
Vintage Car & Tractor Show | Noon-5:00 p.m.
This part of the day really gets our motor running (we had to have a dad joke somewhere)! Tour vintage cars and tractors, and meet their owners to learn more about collecting and caring for these unique pieces of Americana.
Vintage Tool Displays | Noon-5:00 p.m.
Learn more about the hand tools of days-gone-by and speak with tool historian Calvin Shewmaker about their use and care.
Hot Dogs! Get your Hot Dogs heeeere (and a lot more)!
Food trucks specializing in burgers, hotdogs and barbecue, as well as a beer tent will be available throughout the day. The Post Office Shop will also have grab-and-go items including sandwiches, chips, sweet treats and drinks.
