Olde Time Fair


 

 

To describe a fair, the dictionary tells us: a fair is visually appealing, free of clouds and rain, very pleasing to the eye, not excessive or extreme, and more than adequate in quality.

Put all those definitions together and what do you have? The Olde Time Fair, sponsored by the Time and the Valleys Museum. The fair is held each year at Bicentennial Park located on Route 55 in Grahamsville, right next to the Neversink Town Hall. The park is next to the Chestnut Creek which flows through town.

There are many exhibits for interactive fun. "From Fiber to Fabric" demonstrates how raw wool is spun, knitted and quilted.

A peek at pioneer life is on display inside the little log cabin exhibit.

Numerous activities are scheduled throughout the day for young and old.

Contests include:

Corn-shucking
Chestnut Creek Rapids Ball Race
Skillet Throwing for Women
Horeshoe Accuracy

A Pie Auction takes place mid-day
