Pottsgrove Manor welcomes back its annual fair

April 27, 2013 by  

The Colonial May Fair will return to Pottsgrove Manor in Pottstown early this May.

The fair will feature 18th century entertainments such as magic, music, puppetry, and maypole dancing. There will also be children’s games, activities, and contests. Food concessions will be available and artists and crafters will be demonstrating techniques and selling their wares.

Last year’s fair features activities such as hoop races, churning butter, tours of Pottsgrove Manor and cooking demonstrations – all of which will be available again this time round. There will definitely be something to appeal to each and every member of the family in what is set to be a great way to celebrate the history of the area.

Among other activities and entertainment offerings this year are dances and tapestry demonstrations. With Levram the Great also wowing the crowd with his magic and a wealth of representations of historic trades in the area, such as tape weaving and blacksmithing, it promises to be a rich and diverse event.

Vendors will likely be coming from all over the area, including nearby Lansdale. Many of them will be probably working with local print companies to prepare for the fair, and his might include investing in banner, sign, and postcard printing services. Many artists and crafters use postcards as a larger format business card.

The Colonial May Fair will take place at Pottsgrove Manor on May 4 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. Admission is by a suggested donation of $2. For more information, call 610-326-4014.
