Another Successful Market Fair!
On behalf of the Friends of Fort Frederick State Park and the Market Fair Committee, I would like to thank our participants and the public who attended the event for helping make another successful Fort Frederick 18th Century Market Fair. I would also like to say a huge thank you to our volunteers. It truly ‘takes a village’ to create our Market Fair community - and to assist with tear down when the ‘village’ disappears back into the mists for another year. We could not do it without your generous help!
Thank you also to those who helped make the Market Fair auction another successful and fun activity for all - the sutlers who donated the wonderful items for auction, those who did all of the behind the scenes work to make it happen, our auctioneer and those who participated in the bidding. The winning bidders came away with treasures and, at the same time, helped the mission of the Friends of Fort Frederick in their support of this special historic site and park.
Many thanks go to the park staff, who partnered with the Friends organization in handling the physical aspects of the park and fort...and the 21st century outside our ‘village’. They did great work in prepping the site for the event and in the aftermath of rains when we thought we would need an ark!
This year was the 20th Anniversary of the Fort Frederick 18 th Century Market Fair and the Friends of Fort Frederick organization enjoyed celebrating the occasion with everyone - both the public who attended and our 18 th century friends and family. We are so glad you could join us and we hope to see you again in 2015!
