NPS Announces Annual Millbrook Days Festival, September 16 and 17

“Autumn is approaching and that means it is time for the annual Millbrook Days folklife festival,” announced John J. Donahue, Superintendent of Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. This year’s celebration of nineteenth-century rural life will be held on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17 at Millbrook Village, New Jersey, a part of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Millbrook Days will be held rain or shine, from 10 am to 4 pm each day. Admission is free. The festival is jointly sponsored by the National Park Service and the Millbrook Village Society.

“Millbrook Village comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of country life in an earlier time,” said Donahue. Costumed volunteers and park staff will demonstrate 19th century trades, crafts, and home and garden chores. The festival also features old-time children’s games and live, traditional music. Food will be available for purchase.

Free parking and shuttle service are available. The shuttle buses will provide transportation from the Watergate, Turtle Beach and Silvie Meadow parking sites to Millbrook Village from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day of the event. Millbrook is located 12 miles north of I-80 on Old Mine Road (Exit 1) in New Jersey.
