October 14-15, 2017
Scenic Drive Festival is the largest event that takes place in Van Buren County and most likely all of Southeast Iowa! Several historic Villages host a variety of special events and activities. Not only will you find arts, crafts, flea markets and antiques throughout the county on this 2-day extravaganza, you’ll also get to experience a few “non-traditional” activities. We will have free tours of one of the largest Turtle Farms in the Midwest, there will be pioneer-type demonstrations and vendors at Morris Park near Stockport, Iowa. New this year, there will be tours scheduled of the historic Iowaville Cemetery and the children will love learning how to do chores as the Native Americans would have done hundreds of years ago during the presentation of “Village Life as a Native American.” There will also be a Pioneer Log Cabin Tour including authentic cabins in several villages. Four historic Barn Tours and “Fun Funky Stuff” at Bloom and Bark Farm.
