The Bluemont Fair is a small and old fashioned country fair that takes place every September in Bluemont, Virginia. The fair has an emphasis on traditional crafts, farming, and arts, such as quilt making, gardening, blacksmithing, pie-baking/pickle-making, antiques & collectables. It also has plenty of live music, mostly blues and country. Family-friendly activities include a children’s fair, wagon rides, the Indian Village, petting zoo, llamas and alpacas. There is also plenty of delicious homemade-style food, wine tasting, and a Historic Slide Show. Check out an 1825 log schoolhouse, local beekeepers & hives, an antique caboose, a farmers market, and other features of the lovely historic village of Bluemont.
The artisan demonstrations are one of the main highlights of The Bluemont Fair. Visitors can see dozens of artisans demonstrating their skills in pottery, turning wood, weaving baskets, making paper, carving utensils, knitting, crocheting, weaving cloth, spinning yarn, or quilting.
200-year-old Bluemont is located in the foothills of scenic Blue Ridge mountains. It is the Historic and Cultural Conservation District of Loudoun County. The first country fair was held here in the 1970s to raise money for Bluemont's street lights. Over the years it has become an annual Loudoun tradition. Check out its old houses, hike part of the Appalachian Trail and get down to the beautiful Shenandoah River.
