The Museum of Scott County has also hosted several community events to invite the public to take part in the museum project.  In the fall of 2006, we had our first annual "Heritage Festival." At the festival our students dress in costume to act out activities such as churning butter, tanning hides, making apple butter, making sorghum, and many other activities. During the festival students help run the sorghum mill while patrons are able to buy the freshly produced sorghum on site.We also have our Scott High bluegrass band performing with local bands as well. Games include:corn hole toss, face painting, and horseshoes, Native Americans perform a pow wow as well as demonstrating flint knapping. Frontier rifle makers and long hunters also put on demonstrations. Below is a list of vendors.
