35th Annual Arabellas Pie Social & History Fair

Posted by Michelle Cuthbert on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

The sweetest event of the year returns to the Port Colborne Historical & Marine Museum and Arabella’s Tea Room on May 26, 2019 from 12 – 4 p.m. 

The 35th Annual Arabella’s Pie Social & History Fair encourages the Port Colborne community to enjoy a slice of homemade pie with a hot or cold beverage at Arabella’s Tea Room before, or after, a walk through the museum grounds where traditional heritage is on display with live demonstrations, exhibits and entertainment.

“The social is a fun and interactive way to kick off Arabella’s Tea Room season and encourages the community to visit the Museum to learn and experience about our city’s history,” said Stephanie Powell Baswick, museum curator.  “It’s also a great excuse to treat yourself and your family to some delicious pie!”

Some additional activities taking place on the Museum grounds include: discovery of traditional skills at the Niagara Antique Power demonstration and museum Blacksmith; spinning demonstrations in front of the Log House; card printing on the heritage press; traditional costume dress up station; perennial plant sale; Towpath Treasures Flea Market and live piano performance by musician Frank Krahn from 12-3 p.m.

Arabella’s Tea Room opens for the season Saturday, June 1, 2018 and operates daily from 2 – 4 p.m. until September 30, 2019. The Tea Room will also be offering “two for one tea” from June 2-8, 2019.
