To highlight industry and industriousness in McLean County—both past and present—the Museum is inviting area businesses, local unions, trades people, skilled workers, and artisans to showcase their skills and the services they provide to our community as part of an interactive Labor and Work Street Fair on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (weather permitting). This event is free and open to the public.
The Street Fair will take place on the 100 block of West Jefferson Street and 200 block of North Main Street on Museum Square. Participating businesses/trades will offer thematic activities for attendees to observe and try for themselves. Visit the Museum’s booth to pick up a map complete with information about participating businesses/trades and to make-and-take your very own job hat. Additionally, visitors are encouraged to go inside the Museum to explore the newest permanent exhibit Challenges, Choices, and Change: Working for a Living, which opened in September 2018.
A map of the Labor and Work Street Fair, with a complete list of participating businesses and activities at each booth, will be posted soon.
