2012 Autumn in Austerlitz Festival

The 2012 Autumn in Austerlitz Festival  was held on Sunday October 7th, 2012 from 11am to 4pm.  (Always the Sunday before Columbus Day. RAIN OR SHINE).  Attended by over 900 people in 2011, the event features volunteers dressed in early 1830’s costumes, antiques, live music and entertainment for children, many different vendors and a variety of hot and cold foods to satisfy your hunger.

Autumn in Austerlitz began in 1997 as a home grown festival to raise money for the Austerlitz Historical Society and the society’s ambitious project: to create a living history museum in the town of Austerlitz which would depict life in the 1830s, and a center for historical investigation for Austerlitz Town History.


We LOVE pets! However, our insurance does not allow pets to be brought into the festival. Please make arrangements to leave your pets at home. Thank you for your cooperation.
