It’s a fair like no other — shop, play and tour at the 73rd annual Waterford Fair! Join us for our three-day celebration of all things handmade — October 6, 7 and 8, 2017.

122 juried artisans from across the country gather in the National Landmark of Waterford, Virginia to exhibit and demonstrate jewelry, clothing, furniture and home décor craft. It’s your chance to touch, feel and explore high-quality American craft and meet the makers behind the fabulous work.

Experience a Quaker village come alive with period re-enactors, live music and entertainers, heritage farming exhibits, local wine and beer, historic homes tours, art and photography exhibits and hand’s on activities for children of all ages. Indulge in traditional fair fare or gourmet bites from the talented Chefscape chefs!

Proceeds from the Waterford Fair benefit the preservation and education efforts of the Waterford Foundation whose mission is to preserve and protect the Landmark District, and through education, to increase the public’s knowledge of life and work in an early American rural community.
