Bloody Bill RaidWalnut Grove Plantation comes to life the first weekend in October — October 3 and 4 — as more than 100 re-enactors, storytellers, and artisans transform the 1767 homestead into a living colonial village. The event — Festifall — features music, dancing, toy making, cooking, weaving, woodworking, candle dipping, and much more. Re-enactments of loyalist partisan William Cunningham’s deadly 1781 raid and 18th-century military demonstrations will take place both days and are not to be missed!
