For the Family
Saturday, September 08, 2012
A town-wide event dating back to the late 1800s, attended by over a thousand fair-goers every year. Food, music, fun and games, arts and crafts and non-profit information booths.
The Annual Country Fair has been a fixture in the town of Littleton since the 1800s. The fair was originally organized by the women's groups within the Unitarian Church as a fundraiser for the church and various charitable organizations. In the early days the fair was held on church property. Many of the events were housed in the horse and buggy stalls that were attached to the church. When the church replaced the carriage stalls with a Sunday school wing the fair moved across the street to beautiful Fay Park. Over the years the fair has expanded from the front lawn of the church to encompassing the entire park end to end. Today, the Country Fair is a fun-packed day for all ages. Special attractions for children include pony rides, puppet shows, face and nail painting, old-fashioned games and contests, and more. Guests will enjoy listening to live music from the Fay Park gazebo and shopping at the various booths.
Traditional tables include the Country Store with homemade jellies, jams and crafts, Trash and Treasure, Used-Books, Used-Jewelry, Penny Candy, a Holistic Center, and more.
Hours: 10-4 Saturday, September 10th at Fay Park, Littleton, MA
