Spend a day, not a fortune at the annual Littleton Country Fair at Fay Park, 19 Foster St. in Littleton, on Saturday, Sept. 9, 10 am to 4 pm. The family-friendly event features a huge yard sale of household goods, books, jewelry, toys and sporting equipment, as well as a farmer’s market and petting zoo.
New this year are Canine Contests, which start at 11:30 am with a pooch parade - costumes optional, dog talent show and competitions for dog-owner look-a-like and kissing.
Enjoy free live music, and a compendium of activities for kids and adults. Buy homemade jams, jellies, pies, scones, and lunch. Admission and parking are free. Be prepared to negotiate through booths that recycle books, jewelry and household goods. A star attraction is homemade goodies – jams, preserves, pies, and lunch.
The Annual Country Fair has been a fixture in the town of Littleton since the 1800’s. 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 painting, crafter's booths, old-fashioned games and contests, and more. Guests will enjoy our Fair foods, drinks, and desserts and listening to music from the Fay Park gazebo and shopping at the various booths. Traditional tables include the Country Store with homemade jellies, jams and crafts, a huge Trash and Treasure, Used-Books, Used-Jewelry, Penny Candy, a Holistic Center, and more.
Refreshments, including baked goods and luncheon items will be sold during the day. Proceeds benefit First Church Unitarian with a portion of the proceeds to benefit a local charity.
