The 8th Gathering at Garst will return to the grounds of Garst Museum on July 28 and 29. Many new and exciting additions to the event are being planned including the opening of The Living History Encampment on Friday evening July 27. The candlelight and campfire glow of the encampment is beautiful at night and many people do not get to see it in the evening. Visitors will be able to tour the encampment Friday evening and join in the activities and ceremonies planned for around the bonfires.

If you visited last year, you saw the expanded areas in the encampment that offered educational demonstrations by reinactors portraying, Native American Indians, cannon firings, and skilled historical craftsmen. The encampment chairman, Galen Delk, and his committee will be asking for community support to help the encampment grow. Committee members from the encampment, dressed in period attire, will be stopping in local businesses seeking donations to help with expenses in the encampment. Donations can also be sent to Garst Museum, Attn: Gathering at Garst Encampment, 205 N. Broadway, Greenville, OH 45331.
