Annual Harvest Fair

GUILFORD, Maine — The Guilford Historical Society’s annual harvest fair will be held 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at the corner of Water Street and North Main Street (across from Griffins Store).

There will be a scarecrow decorating contest, a Flea n-tique sale, hay rides, grilled hot dogs, antique appraisals as well as an evening cemetery tour.  Local businesses, groups, organizations, and individuals are invited to build a scarecrow.  Straw will be provided for the first 10 scarecrows, so just bring the necessary clothes, accessories and imagination.

The public will be invited to vote for their favorite scarecrow and a winner will be determined by the most votes and ribbons will be handed out for creativity.   Enjoy the bargains at the Flea n-tique, then enjoy a hot-off-the-grill hot dog, tasty chili and other delicious treats.  There will be hay rides for young and old at no charge.  Special Guest Chris Clukey, local antique dealer, will be at the Guilford Historical Society doing antique appraisals for anyone wishing to bring an old item to learn about its history, use and value

The public is invited to bring antiques, crafts or yard sale items to the annual Flea n-tique 10 a.m.-3 p.m.  There is no charge for a 10 x 10 space – you must supply your own table.  No clothing items please.  There are 30 spaces available so register early to reserve your spot or for more information by calling Carrie Fellows at 207-717-5271.

Capping off the day, we’ll hold the annual Elmwood Cemetery Walking Tour at 6:30 p.m.  Walk or ride on the hay wagon for the tour.  The public is invited to ask questions and share information.
