Please join us to celebrate the 90th consecutive anniversary of the Mt. Washington Church Fair!  In 1933, the Fair was a couple of hours in someone's barn. For many decades, it's been a day-long extravaganza at the Church and Town Hall.   In 1939, the Fair's income was $241.  In 2022, it earned $24,000, the bulk of which, as always, was distributed by the Church to a wide range of charities - various religious and many secular, local, national, and international.

Fair '23 , our anniversary party, will be particularly festive, with party decorations; music by Steve Adams; a toast to the anniversary; historical displays. There'll be scrumptious food: mountain-made salads, grill items, fresh-baked desserts, So-Co ice cream, soft drinks. Eat in comfort at tables under the tents.  Try Mt. Washington-made baked goods and preserves.  Post-Covid, we finally return to a full "Kids' Neighborhood":  face painting, nature art table, a story corner, and Andrew the Twister, balloon animal maker. Snap up Art and Artisanal goods to wear, hang, admire.



Mt. Washington merch: stationery, dancing bears dish towels, carving boards; t-shirts, sweats, hats...   Glorious plants and flowers.  Second Hand Rose's gently used clothes (with a try-on space). Accessorize at the fabulous Jewelry table. Our new Vintage Findings table offers nifty retro goods at bargain prices. And, of course, the mother of all tag sales/flea markets, our White Elephant tent, will have surprises, delights, and bargains on used and new items of all kinds.

This year's Big Raffle is the gorgeous "Tree of Life" hand-embroidered, hand-quilted wall hanging.  Check the photo, description, and fascinating history on this site.  Chances are available on this site and live at the Fair. Other exciting raffles on Fair Day:  Each Fair guest receives a free raffle ticket for a door prize -  gift certificates from local stores; services; and neat objects.   We'll have a Kids' Door Prize section, too.  Buy chances for the Hospitality Raffle, gift certificates for a variety of fine eating establishments.  Our Silent Auction, a wildly successful Fair feature, offers a splendid array of fine art, services and goods to bid on. An innovation this year will be opportunity to pay with plastic as well as with cash and checks.

We feel great when the Fair makes lots of money.  Even more, the Fair remains an island of inclusiveness and collaboration, creativity and tradition.  Even in the face of Covid, in 2020, we kept the tradition alive in a virtual format. Town residents work shoulder to shoulder, for nearly a year, making new friends along the way, to create this joyous one-day event for you, our guests. We hope you'll come have a fun day at this special Fair anniversary party,  Saturday, August 5th, 10AM – 3PM (Please leave dogs at home. Thanks for your cooperation.)
