The Fair at New Boston

Have you been to the Fair at New Boston?
I have...and you can view my pictures here.  It's an event you won't want to miss.

Well, I just found out that the participants registration deadline for the Fair at New Boston (in Ohio Fair at New Boston ) is June 1st. The actual Fair isn't until Labor Day weekend in September, but if you wish to dress out as "Citizens" then you must register now. It would be wonderful if the Blue Grass Regency Society could attend as a group, but certainly it isn't required to dress out. If you would like to though, then you must register.

If I remember correctly from last year, tickets are $15 or $20 at the gate. First time (dressed out) participants pay a one time $15 fee (but aren't required to pay that in the future...unless you camp, etc. see rules.) Rules for participants are posted on the official site. Here: Participants They are quite strict about what you wear if you are participating as a reenactor. Here is the registration form in PDF: Registration Form
HOWEVER....if you have absolutely NO idea what you will be doing that weekend since it is so far in advance, please don't worry about registering. Hopefully, later on down the road, you will know if you are free or not, and you can come with the group just for the fun of it without dressing out! And FUN certainly is what I would call this event. You won't regret it. It's a family event...educational and fascinating. There are period foods, vendors, merchants, and artists of all sorts....think a feast of late 18th century, early 19th century articles such as soap, wool, fabric, clothing, accessories, metal work, home wares, furniture, and much more! It's a feast for the eyes!
I do hope you will be able to make it!
