My favorite Peddler fest returns to our area this weekend and next...

Cooler weather is on the horizon to usher in the Prairie Peddler Festival in the hills of Butler on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22nd-23rd, and again the last weekend of September, the 29th-30th.

The festival will be open from 10am-5pm both days for shopping and crafting.  The festival in the hills features over 180 artisan booths, music, festival food, horse-drawn wagon rides, artist demonstrations and hands-on crafting for kids.  Along the hills and wooded landscape, this festival brings thousands to Butler. 

Sorry, no pets allowed in the show, with the exception of service dogs, but, parking is free.
