Ticonderoga Summer A’Fair is returning to Ticonderoga.
The 11th annual event, hosted by the Ticonderoga Historical Society, will be held Saturday, Aug. 10, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hancock House. The Hancock House is located at 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“The Ticonderoga Historical Society holds this annual event fund raiser to support the maintenance of the Hancock House and the preservation of our archival holdings of local area history,” said Raymond Thatcher, a historical society trustee. “The society is grateful for the support of our community friends, which aids us to continue our work preserving yesterday, today and tomorrow for future generations.”
Chris Smith of the historical society is looking forward to the baked goods at the Summer A’Fair.
“Probably the most anticipated treats are at the bake table, which will be featuring items such as scrumptious, freshly baked pies, a variety of muffins for breakfast, delectable cookies you won’t find anywhere else, an assortment of breads, and other delicious goodies,” Smith said. “This is a very popular table so don’t be late if you want to have the pick of your favorite sweets.”
The event also features white elephant tables, books by local authors, historic pictures of various area subjects and other items for sale at the society’s tent and gift shop.
Ti Arts will be open in its downstairs program room in the Hancock House with a selection of one-of-a-kind art items.
There will also be arts and crafts vendors selling their hand-crafted and gift items on the lawn.
“This once-a-year Summer A’Fair has always been a popular event and is one that should not be missed,” Thatcher said.
