This little island that takes only an hour to walk around has a fantastic fall fair. Very old fashioned with produce & food judging, arts & crafts displayed and for sale, apple juice & ice cream making, and kids’ races like the fun, but sometimes dangerous, 3-legged race. All of this is topped off with a barn dance with live music from talented island musicians. The best part about the event though is the celebration of community and island life. Of course, there is also the pride that comes with winning a ribbon!
This event takes place at Beacon House at the south end of the island. The doors of Beacon House will be open to the general public to view all the entries at 12:00 noon (after the judges have finished evaluating the entries). Also, at noon several island vendors will be selling their wares on the back lawn of the Beacon House along with island library volunteers who are selling books. Kids’ games start at 1:30pm. The dance starts at 7:30pm and has very limited space available due to fire regs; advance tickets are required.
