All 150 slots for vendors were scooped up by mid-June, so it will be a full house of very creative people who hope you’ll like their wares. Crafts, antiques, and food will be sold on the village green, which will also have rides for children and live entertainment for everyone.

Just walk down the street to catch the exciting Grand Circuit harness races at the Goshen Historic Track, starting at 1 p.m. on July 3, 4, 5 and 6.
