About the Fair

The Waterford Fair is Virginia’s Premier Arts and Homes Tour festival. Started 74 years ago to raise funds to help preserve the National Landmark village of Waterford, Virginia, the Waterford Fair continues today to support this national treasure as well as provide a forum for master artisans, artists, local crafters and food producers. In addition, the Waterford Fair allows visitors to tour historic homes, walk the village and learn about the history and special significance of Waterford.

Join us in 2018 for the Waterford Fair!
