What is there to do?

At Sauder Village you'll chat with costumed guides about how families lived over 100 years ago. You'll marvel at craftsmen blending skill and creativity in glass, metals, fabric, wood and clay. Try various hands-on activities or visit during one of our many special events like Explore the Crafts, Doll Show and Sale, Dairy Days, Apple Butter Making Week, Quilt Show and more! Make your trip a family get-away and stay at our Sauder Heritage Inn. Have fun playing in the indoor pool, relax under the Great Oak Tree, play family-friendly games like air hockey in the game room, visit with friends in the timber-framed lobby, and enjoy the many refreshment options.

And for our campers, Sauder Village offers a 37 site camping facility.
