The Site transforms into an open-air marketplace, welcoming visitors to explore the vast array of goods and items for sale from various vendors.

“Publick Times” dates back to the Colonial period and is fashioned after Williamsburg of the 1700s when the General Court was in session. “Publick Times” gave visitors an opportunity to come to town to see and be seen, conduct court business, shop, gossip, dine and dance. Guests who attend Publick Day can expect to find a variety of vendors selling antiques, vintage finds, collectibles, crafts and more.
