This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Celebrate autumn at the Colonial Market Fair at the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, our area’s living history working farm and National Park!

The weekend of October 20-21, 2018, families are invited to go back in time and visit 18th-century farmers in costume and character, play games, enjoy live music, watch a children’s puppet show, and make a corn husk doll.

Come hungry! Food and drinks will be available for purchase, including spit-roasted chicken, sausages, seasonal vegetables, cheeses and bread, roasted olives, fruit pies, and more. For the parents, the Colonial Tavern offers gravity poured beer plus ale, hard cider, and wine.
