- Additional night RV Parking is $5.00 per night
RV parking is first come, first served – Anyone wishing to park together should arrive together
The festival is held on Gerry & Fran Morgan’s farm, which is located on highway No.2 just west of the village of Princeton, which was founded in 1792. Gerry & Fran have an interest in old wagons and buggies which are on display at the festival. Highway No.2 was originally called The Old Wagon Road, then Governor’s Road, then the Kings Highway No.2. It was the primary route for settlers moving into the southwestern Ontario area and a great many wagons and carriages used the road. Because of their fondness for the large freight wagons known as Conestoga wagons, it was decided that Conestoga Trail was a suitable name.
