October 7 & 8 Buckler's Harvest Fest, November 4 & 5 Fall Country Jamboree...
Our First Saturday's Free Music Workshops and Jam at Barberville Pioneer Settlement will resume in December and are always a great time to visit!
Meanwhile join us in October and November for two great two-day festivals!
We are celebrating Fall with Lassie Cake at Harvest Fest!
The signature dessert of the Barberville Pioneer Settlement is Lassie Cake!
Many a young lad and lassie have helped to mix the cake from scratch while here on a field trip. We are often asked how Lassie Cake got its name and like much in history - it depends on who you ask...
Some say it is called Lassie Cake because it was an easy recipe for young girls to prepare and remember. Others believe it is because it was sweetened with molasses. Either way its good and next weekend is your opportunity to get your fill of this delicious spicy crumb cake, topped with apples or peaches and whipped cream and/or ice cream.
The Barberville Pioneer Settlement staff and volunteers will be serving up Lassie Cake as a fundraiser in our summer kitchen during the upcoming Buckler's Harvest Fest. All Lassie Cake sales will directly benefit the Barberville Pioneer Settlement's historic buildings and educational programs.
Buckler's Shows who brought you the Strawberry Fest here back in March have rented the grounds again and will be presenting Harvest Fest on October 7th & 8th Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm.
