Welcome to Folklore Village!

Healthy Hoe-Down: Saturday,  November 15th  6:30 potluck 

With Lacey's Lathers Goat Milk Soap, The Briar Pickers & PourParler Dance Callers!

Clare Wiesbrook started Lacey's Lathers Goat Milk Soap when she was 11. She received Lacey, her first goat, as a birthday gift for her ninth birthday. Two years later, when she decided she wanted to breed Lacey and show her and her kids, Clare's mom told her that she would have to pay for the feed. That was the beginning of her business. Clare's goat herd has grown through the years and now includes 30 Boer meat goats and 20 Alpine dairy goats. Lacey's Lathers Goat Milk Soap is a creamy soap, leaving your skin with a lotiony feel.

Stock up on some fun stocking stuffers or holiday gifts with Lacey's Lathers Soaps!

Fall Folk Fare Fundraiser, Saturday November 22nd














Folk Fare = that which nourishes and sustains us…all folk. Edibles, beautifuls, usefuls, adventurefuls. All brought together along with dancing, music, fellowship, and a silent auction, to support and sustain Folklore Village programming, staff and facilities.


6:30 potluck (doors at 6:00), followed by dancing to The Intemperence Collective (Balkan) and Prairie Bayou Cajun Band

The evening’s silent auction will include a unique array of quality folk and artisan items. Some collected highlights so far include: Japanese hanten jacket and framed Japanese prints, Dale of Norway sweater, Ostfriesland tea service for 6, delicious edible offerings-beautifully decorated cake, homemade soups, local heritage pork bundle, a handmade afghan, B & B Farm Stay, 5-class yoga pass, photography session, cross country ski lesson, and oh, so much more!

Auction items are being received daily, and are being featured on Folklore Village’s Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1486323724977876/ (check often for updates!)


The 2014 Folk Fare auction is coordinated by the newly re-energized “Friends of Folklore Village.” Your involvement in this sister organization is welcome.
