75 Years of the Waterford Fair

2019 is the 75th year of the Waterford Fair. Started in 1944 as a means of supporting the preservation efforts of the newly formed Waterford Foundation as well as providing a venue for traditional arts, the Waterford Fair has earned a reputation as one of the country’s premier cultural events.

Since it’s beginning, visitors to the Fair have enjoyed touring historic homes, walking the National Landmark village and exploring the wealth of traditional arts, foods and entertainment. It is no different today! Come and see what the Fair is all about this October.

PET POLICY

We love your pooch too…

…which is why we don’t allow dogs at the Waterford Fair. Conditions at the Fair are not comfortable pets for several reasons including lack of water, crowds, heat, and no bathroom areas for pets.  We ask that you leave them home so you can both have a more enjoyable day. Thank you!
