Fall Festival
The 2017 Fairbanks Fall Festival will be September 24th

On Sunday, September 24, the Fairbanks House is hosting its annual Fall Festival. Join us to see demonstrations of historic crafts like weaving, spinning, tin-smithing, pottery-making, and woodworking. Buy homemade goods from the artists. Taste and buy delicious beer from Hidden Cove Brewing of Maine. Meet a Civil War troop and see their camp, an 18th century doctor, and Marines serving in the War of 1812. Kids can play historic games and dip their own candle! See a couple of live alpacas and learn why wool-providing animals (like sheep) were so important throughout colonial history. Take a look inside the 1637 Fairbanks House (for free), and support the museum by buying raffle tickets for great prizes to local businesses or purchasing items from our tag sale table.

The festival will run from 12pm-5pm at the Fairbanks House, and admission is free.
