Fair Day

Saturday, August 3rd, 2019
9 am – 4 pm. Townshend Common

Rain or Shine.

Called “New England at its finest” by the Boston Globe, the annual Grace Cottage Hospital Auxiliary Fair Day features activities to please the whole family — a live auction, bargain booths (including books, costume jewelry, plants and white elephant), musical entertainment, all-day bingo, pony rides, face painting and costumes, food, games, the return of the popular dunking booth, and more!

The Fair also includes an Arts & Crafts Show, which will be held in the Townshend Church. All fine arts and crafts pieces in the show will be for sale, with a portion of the Arts & Crafts Show proceeds going to benefit Grace Cottage Hospital.

For those born at Grace Cottage, join in the Birthday Parade led by bagpipers and the Grace Cottage stork.  (Not born at GCH? “Valley Kids” born in the West River Valley from 2002 to today are invited to join the parade, too!) The Baby Parade awards prizes for oldest, youngest, and to the person who came from farthest away.

Fair Day is run by 100+ volunteers to benefit Grace Cottage Hospital.

Auction and Art show accept credit cards and checks. Most booths cash only.

Come & enjoy the 69th Annual Grace Cottage Fair!
