The Fair opens on Saturday at 9:00 am and closes at 4:00 pm, and then reopens on Sunday at 11:30 am and closes at 4:00 pm.
The fair features 65+ crafters located in four buildings all within a short walking distance. The buildings are Memorial Hall, the United Methodist Church, the Universalist Church, and the House of Art. Luncheon is served in the Methodist Church and Memorial Hall.
This fair distinguishes itself from other fairs, by featuring only hand-crafted items. All locations offer a wide variety of gifts, decorations, and collectibles, including stained glass, pottery, bath products, books, candles, clothing, holiday decorations, jewelry, quilts, soft sculpture, hand crafted greeting cards, and much more.
Starting at 4 pm on Saturday a Holiday Carol Sing will begin in front of Memorial Hall. In the past the Girl Scouts have conducted this carol sing. Last year we expanded this sing to include folks outside of the Girl Scouts. We encourage everyone to come out and help us ring in the holiday season by participating in the NEW Monson Community Carol Sing along.
The singing will precede Santa’s arrival on a fire truck at about 4:30 and the town holiday lights will be turned on. All of the Children gathered can follow Santa to the Fire Station to meet him and enjoy some refreshments.
All are welcome.
You are encouraged to join this annual tradition and our NEW Monson Community Carol Sing and get a head start on your Christmas shopping.
