p359221347-3.jpgWethersfield Historical Society presents the 40th Annual Old Wethersfield Arts & Crafts Fair on Saturday, October 1 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Join us for a day of community, fun, and celebration on the beautiful grounds of Cove Park in the heart of the oldest and largest historic district in Connecticut. (Also the state’s most recently designated Cultural District). Browse hand-made items, shop for unique gifts, meet the artists, and watch demonstrations from over 70 juried artisans and vendors.  There will be pottery, woodwork, prints, jewelry, textiles, and fabric art, painting, photography, and so much more. Free parking is available along State Street, and adjacent to the DMV.

Wethersfield Historical Society’s Tent will be filled with “Attic Treasures” and treats. Our volunteer bakers will be offering delicious home-made goodies for sale. Throughout the year, our friends and neighbors have been donating one-of-a-kind items to our “Attic Treasures” that the society offers for sale to help support our educational programming. The Old Wethersfield Arts & Crafts Fair also welcomes other area non-profits like the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts, the Wethersfield Art League, and Ginger’s Jams and Jellies to share their work and missions with the community.

Back by popular demand, 1 free pumpkin will be given to the first 100 children under age 12. Children can bring their pumpkins to the tent along State Street to decorate them.  Children (and their parents) will enjoy great food by many vendors. This year’s fair has the added feature of food trucks. There will also be live music.

The Old Wethersfield Arts & Crafts Fair is a benefit event that supports Wethersfield Historical Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit, membership supported organization founded in 1932. The Society offers free admission to the Wethersfield Museum year round in addition to providing quality educational programming that improves the lives of residents and helps preserve the oldest and largest historic district in the state of Connecticut. In celebration of Craft Fair’s 40th Anniversary, admission has been reduced to $5. Tickets are available online through a link on the society’s website. Admission is FREE to current members of Wethersfield Historical Society and children under 12 when accompanied by an adult. For more information, visit www.wethersfieldhistory.org
