Come one, come all!

This year’s fair will be held live and in-person on Saturday, September 10th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
here at the Congregational Church of Westminster West, Vermont, just like it used to be.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there again this year!

The usual events are outlined in the preliminary schedule below, including returning popular events like the RAFFLE for a choice of interesting high-value items, the GOLDEN ELEPHANT SALE, and the ONLINE SILENT AUCTION (we’ll have a sneak peek available in just a little while). There’s something for everyone!

Some events may shift if there’s a change in the state’s COVID-19 recommendations and requirements, but as of today, all systems are “go.” Please be kind to your neighbors and mask up while inside any of the buildings, but most importantly, come and have a good time!

Don’t forget about this year’s raffle items, which you can inspect here.
