37th Annual “Echoes of the Past” Historical Trade Fair


Early American way of life showcasing merchants, craftsmen, military and civilians is the theme of this historical weekend program.

One of the Midwest’s original and largest indoor historical trade fairs, “Echoes of the Past” Historical Trade Fair, is scheduled for February 23 and 24 at the Sunnyview Exposition Center and Winnebago County Fair Grounds in Oshkosh.

The 37th annual event features supplies for the historical re-enactor, muzzleloading enthusiast and the general public. Meet merchants and craftsmen stocking historical clothing, books, patterns, tinware, pewter, beads, leather, fur, forged iron, pottery, firearms, knives and hundreds of other items too numerous to mention.

Civilians and soldiers representing time periods ranging from the mid-1700s through the American Civil War and Western Frontier provide an interesting and educational experience. Adults and children can enjoy demonstrations, music, shopping, food and a festive atmosphere.

The trade fair is open to the public with show hours on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults, and children 10 and under are free with an adult.
