2018 Schedule of Events

This year we are adding a new event, the Kalamazoo Living History Show in Kalamazoo, MI  at the Expo Center on the fairgrounds, March 17-18, 2018. It’s an indoor event with tables and booths, people dressed in pre-1840 clothing.  We have 3 tables reserved. I’ve been working hard to get ready for this first event of the year.


Feast of the St. Claire in Port Huron, MI is a nice French and Indian War time period event that we really enjoy. The weather is great, never hot since it’s so far North. Love being on the the big port and watching boats go to and from Canada. A great way to spend Memorial Day weekend. May 26-27, 2018


Koh-Koh-Mah & Foster Living History Encampment in Kokomo, In is a lovely event with a large Eastern Woodland Natives component and an emphasis on historical accuracy.  French and Indian time period. They do a wonderful job organizing, and it really has a family feel. September 15-16, 2018


Last, but certainly not least, The Feast of the Hunter’s Moon at Fort Ouiatenon in West Lafayette, IN.  It’s an awesome event that we’ve been participating in for 15 years.  French and Indian time period. Oct 5-6, 2018








We had fun in 2017!

2017 brought a lot of fun to Gentry Gourds. We participated in 3 historical reenacting events: The Feast of the Hunters Moon in Indiana, Kohkohmah also in Indiana and The Feast of the St. Claire in Michigan. All were fun and profitable, with new and old friends met along the way. Pictures from all of the events will be shown on this post. Yes, we’ve neglected our gourd blog. You’ll see new gourd art techniques, wood burning, Celtic, water bottles and more. We also have a new, smaller and easier tent.
