Announcing the 2019 Salem Spice Festival at Pioneer Village September 14, 2019 12pm-5pm

Salem, Massachusetts – The City of Salem is hosting the 2019 Salem Spice Festival. Join us and celebrate nearly four centuries of Salem’s history of herbs, teas, and spices.  

Walk through our historic village and visit vendors selling spices, soaps and one of a kind handcrafted items. Enjoy colonial music and song being performed throughout the day and learn something new during our scheduled talks about the Salem, the spice trade, the history of tea drinking and more. Follow along as we share open hearth cooking demonstrations and herbal remedies.  Make a corn husk doll or wheat-charm! Or perhaps, just sit beside the fire and take in a tale being told by a costumed storyteller. There will also be exhibits, games and hands-on activities for children!

Most importantly, there will be spiced cider and other autumnal treats!

Admission is free though we do suggest a donation of $5.00. All proceeds will benefit Pioneer Village.

About Pioneer Village

Built in 1930 to mark the tercentennial of Massachusetts, Pioneer Village is America’s first living history museum. The village sits on three acres of land and contains various examples of colonial architecture: dugouts, wigwams, thatched-roof cottages, and the Governor’s Faire House. Culinary and medicinal gardens and a blacksmith shop further interpret early 17th-century colonial life.

Pioneer Village is nestled between the woods and the ocean, a ten-minute drive from downtown Salem, in Salem’s Forest River Park.
