Welcome Demonstrators

Click here to Log In

The Yankee Peddler Demonstrators bring special areas of expertise to life during the Yankee Peddler Festival. Our mountain men, militia, wagon train, and spinning guild present life as it was during the 1776-1825 period, even living out of their encampments on the grounds at night during the Festival.

Unlike exhibitors at Yankee Peddler, our demonstrators are not present to sell items, even though they do make many of the tools and items they use on the grounds. Demonstrators, rather, are supported by the Festival Association to make their many contributions, especially in the area of education.

For those wishing to apply to be a demonstrator at this year's Festival, please click on the Application and Upload pulldown menu above. (Please note: Your application is not your final contract with the Festival Association.)

Once you have been accepted by the Festival Association, you will be notified and receive a contract by email. (The contract will come from Please be sure to check your email.) You will also gain entry to the Information Packet menu above where information and downloads involving your participation will be available.

For any questions, please contact YPFA at 800-535-5634, or for technical issues contact the webmaster here.
