MASTER ARTISANS

Exceptional creations

Artisans who demonstrate at the Waterford Fair are juried by professionals in the field. Their work must be made with traditional methods and display the highest quality of their craft.

Many artisans return to the Waterford Fair year after year and every year there are new artisans. Several Waterford Fair artisans also teach their craft at the Waterford Craft School.

Waterford voted in the Top Ten of America’s Favorite Towns for Craft Lovers!

WATERFORD HISTORY

THE OLD MILL

The Old Mill is an icon of Waterford and has been utilized by the Waterford Fair since it started in 1946. It is a fitting home for the traditional arts and crafts sold there every year. This year is no exception! You can still shop the Old Mill shop online through the Virtual Fair on Eventeny!

SUPPORT ARTISANS

BUY MADE-BY-HAND

Thank you for supporting artisans who are keeping traditional made-by-hand arts and trades alive at the Waterford Fair. Not only do you help sustain artisans and natural food-producers by purchasing their products, you help them pass the torch to future generations by learning about what they do, watching their demonstrations, and taking classes from those who teach.

EXPLORE WATERFORD’S

AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY

Living history is always part of the Waterford Fair. From African-American interpreters and Civil War re-enactors to period-correct entertainers, you can experience history in an up-close and personal way.

FREED’s mission is to educate the public and to promote the accomplishments of the African American Civil War Soldiers and women who supported their fight for freedom. Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the African American Civil War Museum in Washington, D.C. features a rich collection of artifacts, documents, primary sources and technology to create a meaningful learning experience for families, students, Civil War enthusiasts and historians about the period from the American Civil War to Civil Rights and beyond.
