The 18th Annual Eudorafest gets underway this Saturday (October 4) with a multitude of events.
Most events for Eudorafest will be centered on the intersection of Main Street and 8th Street in downtown Eudora. The festivities will start at 9:00am when the vendor area opens and other activities will also commence. For a detailed list of all the activities and festivities planned for Eudorafest, visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/EudoraFest/108894429162885, or their page on the City of Eudora website: http://www.cityofeudoraks.gov/index.aspx?NID=84.
All day long from 9:00am until Eudorafest closes at 5:00pm, you will have the chance to stroll up and down Main Street listening to musicians and wondering through the various vendor tents finding many locally made products and many of the Downtown businesses will also have their doors open to welcome visitors.
Very close to all the Eudorafest festivities will be the Open House at 720 Main Street, the future site of the Eudora Community Museum. The Open House will be the first opportunity the public has to tour the interior of this historic property, commonly referred to as the Trefz building. The Eudora Area Historical Society (EAHS) has been in the process of rehabilitating the 130+ year old property on the Kansas Register of Historic Places in order to house their museum. The rehabilitation work on the property is not yet complete, but much progress has been made. The beautifully restored original limestone walls and other restored features will be available to view by the public.
The EAHS will host a craft sale inside the property at 720 Main Street. Historic books, and craft items (including rustic birdhouses) will be for sale. All proceeds generated will fund future rehabilitation work at the 720 Main Street property. The Open House and Craft Sale at 720 Main Street will be from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday October 4th.
