Education Program

Columbus Day Monday has been an annual tradition at the Festival for over thirty years.   The Festival is committed to making this day a valuable educational experience and an enjoyable time for learning. Students of all ages have a chance to do more than study the history in a book; it gives them a chance to live it! 

School Groups may attend on Columbus Day or any other day the Festival is open.

All orders received by September 13th will be entered to win a catered luncheon hosted by the Lord & Lady Mayor of Canterbury!
