2019 Retro Town Fair

Historic House Grounds

10 Crescent Road

Greenbelt, MD 20770

As a part of our Greenbelt Labor Day festivities, the Greenbelt Museum holds a Retro Town Fair on the grounds of the Historic House at 10B Crescent. Our Retro Town Fair is much like those the earliest Greenbelters enjoyed starting in 1939. Ribbons are awarded for the best entries in a number of categories: flowers, vegetables, baked goods, canned goods and needlework/sewing. We also have a "Legacy" handcraft category welcoming items that are heirloom handcrafts made by an entrant, or by a family member, more than 10 years ago. Legacy items are displayed inside 10A Crescent and are not judged as they are exhibit only.
