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
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,
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.
