Well, for the past 50 years this would have been the weekend of the Bluemont Fair. Traditionally, I write a little note of cheer to all the fair chairs on the first morning of the Fair. That obviously isn’t happening, so I’m sharing this tradition with you all today.

For the past 16 years I'd wake early, try to shove as much food into my mouth as possible, dress in the chosen fair shirt, tassel balloons to my hair and hit the day running. The first years were a balance of duty and motherhood, but luckily chairing the children's fair made that easier. My children, along with Cynthia's, Anna's, and Janet’s to name a few , were raised by our Bluemont Fair and those memories are part of their beings.

So now here we are, in this very weird time looking out at a world so differently. Without a doubt we made the right decision to cancel this fair, but it isn't without sadness. Cynthia and I took over chairing this fair because we made a commitment to our community, and the fair binds us in a way that other communities don't have. Rushing around the village looking for fire hydrants with the Rusts, helping out Hillary when something goes crazy at the Children’s fair, placing tents with Sheri at the Community Center…this fair bring us all together. And many of you give hours and hours of your time each year to make our fair the wonderful event that it is.

Some of you I still see regularly, but with some of you the fair IS what brought us together. So whether you are here in Bluemont on this day, reminiscing about how we used to gather Saturday at 5pm for that best-tasting beer ever, or perhaps you took this cancelation to plan something else on fair weekend, just know we are thinking of you. Our community, and all its history and all its personalities are dear to us, and we miss you.

Hugs and love on this glorious Non-Fair Day!

Organizers of the Bluemont Fair are pleased to announce the selection of Nicole Henry of Tannery Rags, whose vast array of handwoven rugs and throws created a bright splash of color on the fairgrounds, as Juried Crafts winner of the 50th Annual Bluemont Fair. The prize for winning Juried Crafts is complimentary display space at the 51st Annual Bluemont Fair (to be held September 19 & 20, 2020), a very large blue ribbon, and, of course, bragging rights!

Nicole got into crafting as part of a challenge many years ago and began weaving in 2017. Her first project was on a frame loom she made between two trees. After creating a few web-type weavings, she bought a used floor loom and jumped in with both feet. Looking around for inexpensive supplies was an adventure. She ordered factory waste from upholstery and sock manufacturers and began to weave these discarded materials into colorful creations, gradually improving in skill and artistry. When she lost her regular employment in 2018, weaving took center stage in her life and she began to sell her works at a few small shows and farm markets. Eventually she added wool to her weaving, having heard that creating one's own weft is a happy eventuality. She located sheep farms, bought and washed fleeces, and began incorporating spinning and felting into her craft. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Nicole Henry's Tannery Rags, and the work of many other fine artisans, will be on display and available for purchase during the 51st Annual Bluemont Fair. Some of the artisans, including Nicole, demonstrate the process of creating their craft at the fair, providing a fascinating learning experience.

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.
