Waterford Fair (VIRTUAL This Year)

October 2 - October 4

The Waterford Foundation is excited to bring you the VIRTUAL Fair “UNMASKED” and from the safety of your own home, October 2-4. We all know it will not be the same as celebrating in person, in the Landmark, but we hope you will participate, take a virtual tour, shop the Old Mill ONLINE Sale, sign up for a virtual workshop (or two), and show your support to the Foundation. Select one of our “Taste of the Fair” packages and take a bit of the Fair home with you!

Your VIRTUAL Fair ticket includes the following online content:
  • Homes Tour: Looking Back at Waterford’s Commercial Past (6 residences and 3 Foundation buildings)
  • Living historian interviews and talks
  • Artisan demonstrations
Videos will be available for viewing from 10/2-10/20. Tickets are $10 per person. Members tickets are FREE (watch for the discount code to come to your inbox).
For more information, to purchase tickets or packages, and/or to register for workshops, follow this link.

The Old Mill Shop will be OPEN FOR BUSINESS but with a twist! The “sale” will be broken up into 6 small online, live sales, 2 each day at 10 am and 2 pm. Purchases are “for pick up only” and you may want to plan to pick up for out-of-town friends and family.
