12th Annual 18th Century Market Fair

November 5 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Market Fair brings the colonial past to life in this annual, highly-anticipated special event! Walk the ground where 18th century Doverites went to market, browsing among historic trade demonstrators, local and regional vendors selling their food and wares, and talented performers sweeping you back through the centuries. This event is FREE to attend, so we hope you’ll consider spending the day with us on a true historical adventure! With dozens of market stalls, demonstrations and performers, we recommend setting aside several hours for your visit. Please also wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather!
For the first time in its 12 year history, our Market Fair will be held over 2 days to give you more opportunities to see entertainers such as Doc Balthazar’s Miracle Medicine Show, musicians such as Johnny Strum Troubadour, demonstrations of basket weaving and woodworking as well as vendors selling their handmade wears and food!
