An Old Fashioned Sunday in Autumn

Seventh annual free fall event for people of all ages. Antique tractors will be on display along with working scale model gas engines. Historical movies of farming on the Palouse will be shown and a “name the antique” contest is planned again this year. The annual apple pie baking contest will be judged by professional bakers with prizes for the winners. Visitors may purchase home made ice cream along with the pie which will raise funds for operations at the Dahmen Barn. Enjoy live music by the Snake River Six and the exhibit of quilts by the Palouse Patchers with the theme of “Elements: Earth, Wind, Fire and Water.” New this year is a kids’ corner with fun activities for youngsters. The yard behind the wheel fence will be filled with artists and craftspeople demonstrating and selling what they create, and live alpacas will be on display along with items handmade from their fiber. Fresh, local produce will be available and the Uniontown Deli will have lunch items and drinks for sale.

Local wines wrapped in local art will be the silent auction at this event. Resident artists are really excited about creating containers in various mediums to envelope bottles of wine that have been donated by local wineries from the Moscow-Pullman area and the Lewis-Clark Valley. A “Name the Cow” contest will culminate at the close of this event. The cow, a larger than life metal sculpture welded from parts from agricultural equipment, will be in place soon across from the Barn, near the highway. The piece was designed as a tribute to the agricultural history of Uniontown and the Dahmen Barn’s past as a commercial dairy operation.
