2009 Steven Foster Music and Heritage Festival (Doo Dah Days)

I know some of you live in the Pittsburgh area and might enjoy attending the Steven Foster Music and Heritage Festival which will be this Saturday July 11, 12 to 5. The Lawrenceville Historical Society, together with the Allegheny Cemetery Historical Association, have organized this festival(Doo Dah Days!). The event takes place in Allegheny Cemetery, the sixth oldest rural cemetery in the United States. It does seem a little strange to have a festival in a cemetery but this is the 3rd annual event.

There will be four folk bands, specializing in Stephen Foster era music, educational tours of Allegheny Cemetery (including Foster's burial place), costumed re-enactors and other outdoor activities. Visit this web site and learn more about he event and Steven Foster .

My husband and I plan on attending and will take lots of photo to share with you.
