Homecoming posterI’m excited to announce that plans are underway for a very special event this summer in Deep Valley (Mankato, MN)!

You are invited to come to Deep Valley on June 28 through July 2 for a celebration of Maud Hart Lovelace and the Betsy-Tacy books.

Experience life in Deep Valley at the turn of the 20th century. Some of the activities planned include special guided tours of the Betsy and Tacy houses, the Betsy-Tacy neighborhood, and Lincoln Park historic homes. There will be carriage rides, a picnic in Sibley (Page) Park, bus tours, a tea party, Living History actors, special programs and exhibits, speakers, a book fair, a band concert in Lincoln Park, and more.

Pre-registration for this event is highly recommended, as space is limited for some programs. Come for one day or all five days. Everyone who pre-registers receives a free tote bag.

The event is sponsored by the Betsy-Tacy Society, and many other local organizations and businesses are participating to make this a fantastic experience.

Download a registration form and a program schedule from the Betsy-Tacy Society website. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity. Come to Deep Valley this summer!
