Celebrate spring at the first Colonial Market Fair of the season at the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, our area’s living history working farm and National Park! May 19-20, 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.

Plus, see real 18th-century farm activities like spinning and candle making, as well as meet heritage breed animals, including Ossabow pigs, chickens, geese, and turkeys. Herbs and flowering plants available for sale as well as soaps, candles, and 18th-century clothing and jewelry.

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.
