Retro Town Fair

Sunday, September 1, 2pm-4pm

10B Crescent Rd.

It is time for the Retro Town Fair! The Fair will take place on the grounds of the Museum house at 10B Crescent. Our Retro Town Fair is much like those the earliest Greenbelters enjoyed starting in 1939. Ribbons will be awarded for the best entries in a number of categories: flowers, vegetables, baked goods, canned goods and needlework/sewing. Or bring an item for our Legacy Handcraft Exhibition! These are items that are heirloom handcrafts made by an entrant, or by a family member, more than 10 years ago. Please include relevant information about the item (note cards will be provided). We’ll have an area inside 10A Crescent where they will be displayed. These items will not be judged, they are for exhibit only. 

All entries accepted 10am-11:30am and must be accompanied by a completed submission form. Entries will be on display from 1-4pm. All items must be picked up between 4-5pm. Questions? Please email or call Education and Volunteer Coordinator, Sheila Maffay-Tuthill at education@greenbeltmuseum.org or 240-542-2064. This event will go on rain or shine!
