Parade through Faerieville and Quirky and Creative Artisan Faire
Join in our small town parade through Faerieville led by the Chester Fife & Drum Corps at 2pm. Established in 1868, the Chester group is the oldest, continuously active fife & drum corps in Connecticut, and one of the oldest and continuously active in the United States. The groups is comprised of members young and seasoned with a musical repertoire of traditional early Revolutionary War. Come early and get your enchantment on with dancer L’Ana Burton who will lead faerie dance lessons beginning at 1:30pm. Wings, crowns, tiaras, and Americana attire encouraged.
Artful objects created by local artisans and crafters inspired by faeries, nature, and more will be featured in a special one-day, pop-up display at the Museum.
Museum Educators present an Americana-inspired hands-on project for families to enjoy during their visit.
