  • Old Sturbridge Village
    In 1935, the Wells family sought out a place to display their massive collection of New England antiquities. When they couldn't find one that was sufficient, they decided to build a museum. Since its founding, Old Sturbridge Village—a living-history museum with its own rich history—has granted visitors a chance to experience New England life in the 19th-century firsthand. As they navigate a town and rustic countryside filled with 40 historic buildings, including an old schoolhouse, mansion homes, and three water-powered mills, visitors encounter heritage farm animals and interpreters in period costume. At regular times throughout the day, specific sites become interactive. A shoemaker cobbles a new pair of shoes, a blacksmith submerges steaming hunks of metal, and a soldier makes lifelike musket sounds with his mouth—all for the benefit of live audiences. Throughout the year, events such as cooking and craft-making classes further enhance the educational experience.

  • The Original Wedding Expo
    The Original Wedding Expo unites local wedding vendors with soon-to-be brides and grooms, presenting a day filled with gowns, cakes, and flowers. Marriage-minded attendees field questions to dozens of merchants fluent in wedding planning and etiquette, settling quandaries over what's appropriate to throw at newlyweds––rice, birdseed, or baseballs. DJs and live bands provide a soundtrack as guests chat with photographers and browse the bridal-gown sale, whose more than 150 dresses showcase the modern and classic styles. At 2:00 p.m., a fashion show exhibits elegant and fun dresses for the entire bridal party, presenting suitable attire for best friends, family members, and over-sentimental mannequins. The expo automatically enters registered attendees into raffles for grand prizes such as a honeymoon, limousine or tuxedo rentals, and a designer wedding cake.
