Our Bluemont Fair STRAW BALES will be for sale once again at the Bluemont Community Center (BCC) until it is gone.

Please leave checks made out to BCA (Bluemont Citizens Association) for $4 a bale. This is a great fundraiser for the village, so decorate those lawns and prepare your animals for a cozy winter slumber with cheap bales of straw!

All the dry straw will be placed in the SHED tonight after the fair. The SHED is the building to the left of the Bluemont Community Center playground. The BCC is open 7am-6:30pm Monday-Friday. When you arrive, go up to the front desk of the center and ask them to open the shed for you. There is a box in there to collect the straw money.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. If you have a huge order, we can rope it off for you.

The 51st Bluemont Fair is under way today, September 18th and we want to thank everyone who is part of this annual fund raiser.

Did you know that, as an unincorporated town, the Bluemont Fair is the only fundraiser for the village of Bluemont?

The town must use the earnings from the fair to meet all its expenses, including the electric bills from village-run properties, the costs of rehabilitating the historic buildings we are working to save and preserving our historic artifacts, and the fees involved with sharing information through our newsletter and community-building events.

We also spend the money on keeping Bluemont beautiful (we hope you like the flower barrels, for example) and we give large amounts to area service organizations to help support our neighbors in need.

We also give scholarships to all Bluemont high school seniors who apply and show that they have volunteered for their community.
So thank you for supporting the Bluemont Fair, and thereby supporting the entire community of Bluemont!

There is still time to come out today and again Sunday!
See you at the Fair!

The Snickersville Academy is working hard to draw people up the hill to visit this adorable cabin that was Bluemont’s first school. They will have chalk-paint footprints leading up the hill to the Academy from the Lake Store. They will have a free craft for the children, where they can make a “whirlagig”. They can also play ring toss and get free butterfly stickers.

Local Indian Village Outdoor Experience Featured at Historic Bluemont Fair!

This year’s Indian Village features new exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities. There will be Indigenous and local archeology; a suspended reading-room; wild-color tie dye; morel mushroom propagation; cordage making; rock, gems and crystals; fishing basket weaving; cattail weaving; natural soap making; wooden flutes; food is medicine garden; music and films; Native American regalia exhibit; flint napping; bones, stones and other treasures; as well as community healing.

“The change of seasons is always a mark in time within our Native American culture,” said Sanctuary on the Trail Co-Founder Chris (Comeswithclouds) White of Cherokee Nation.

“Traditionally the autumn equinox signals time to celebrate harvest. We’re excited to be part of the Bluemont Fair community and we and our volunteers are eager to get to know our neighbors and celebrate.”

This outdoor resource-event is of great significance to everyone interested in Native American Culture and features Native American Indian Jamie Oxendine a Lumbee author of “Southeastern Woodland Designs,” a book for adults and children.

“Jamie’s book has 23-pages of tribal patterns that can be used to create jewelry, paintings, tattoos and fabric designs, or as coloring book,” explained Sanctuary on the Trail Co-Founder and Lumbee Indian René Locklear White. “Jamie’s book will intrigue and captivate people of all ages and can serve as an important classroom teaching-aid. You will find Jamie’s book in the center of our suspended reading-room.”

Event times for the Indian Village are posted on Sanctuary on the Trail’s web sites www.SanctuaryontheTrail.org and www.HarvestGathering.org.

Did you know we are having trains at the Bluemont Fair?

Northern Virginia NTRAK (NVNTRAK) will be showcasing model trains upstairs at the E.E. Lake Store. It will be a special treat for young and old: courtesy of Northern Virginia NTRAK N-Scale Railroading Club.

Since 1991, NVNTRAK has been supporting community events and local charities by displaying intricate and detailed model railroad layouts throughout the National Capital Region. NVNTRAK’s mission is to introduce people to the hobby of model railroading and provide information about railroad history and safety to the general public.

If you like trains even more just a few steps down Railroad Street is the reconstructed Bluemont Train Station, filled with exhibits and Hair Cuts By Rosemary, who can style your hair while recounting railroading tales.

On the grounds of the Community Center the historic Caboose will be open for inspection, and across the street at the Stone Church you can watch the history slide show, “When the Trains Came to Bluemont”.

Our Story

Enjoy old-fashioned fun at our country fair held in the historic village of Bluemont, in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Bring your family and friends to the 49th annual Fair and take a day to wander through our 200-year-old village nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains. Browse our artisan crafts and enjoy local wine, beer, and music, all while experiencing the history and traditions of our area. Grab a bite to eat while the children enjoy the games in the Children’s Fair or play in the Indian Village’s wigwam. Breathe in some mountain air, have fun, learn something new, and start checking off that holiday gift list, all for less than the price of a movie. (And kids 9 and under get in free!) See you at the Fair! Visit our website (www.bluemontfair.org) for details.
