Ohio Valley Frontier Days in Steubenville:  Every year, Historic Fort Steuben – a reconstructed 18th-century fort built on its original site overlooking the Ohio River – opens its mighty wooden gates for two special days to reenactors, demonstrators, musicians, storytellers, artists, crafters, and visitors of all ages for its family-friendly Festival. Within the picket walls, the 1st American Regiment set up camp and demonstrated the action of the flintlocks as well as the daily life of the enlisted men who inhabited the Fort in 1787. Visitors participate in games and contests, learn about surveying on the frontier, make crafts, and join activities that bring the past to life. All buildings, including the First Federal Land Office, are open for tours. Meet the blacksmith, bucket maker, candle makers, and others who demonstrate 18th & 19th-century skills. Crafts, food, and music – including award-winning Ohio singer-songwriter Steve Free – make this a weekend the whole family will want to experience.
