After all the Labor Day weekend festivities have quieted down, get ready for a beloved East End celebration when the Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead presents its annual Country Fair and Craft Show.

"The Annual Hallockville Country Fair is a North Fork tradition and celebrates the history and community of the area," noted Lisa Pepe of Hallockville Museum Farm. "Hallockville works hard to keep the Fair authentic to a true country fair. You will see all sorts of wonderful demonstrations, blacksmithing, weaving, woodworking, quilting, wooden boat building and so much more."

Taking place Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., fairgoers can learn about the community's folk arts and agricultural traditions, meet local artisans and so much more.

"There will also be over 50 genuine hand-crafters vending at the Fair!" shared Pepe. "From soaps, cards, baskets, aprons, candles, everything is handmade by a local artisan. There will be tractor pulls all day, some fantastic local food trucks (and of course the Hallockville Bake Shop with homemade goodies!) and so much more."

The Fair will also feature a 1930's Depression Era Quilt Show in the Historic Naugles Barn, live music, children's activities and games, guided museum tours of the 1765 Homestead, 1931 Cichanowicz Farmhouse and Homestead Barn, a special 250th Anniversary exhibit and historic transportation exhibit, a livestock display and farm animals with goats, horses, donkeys, cows and more, local food and beverage vendors, and irresistible homemade baked goods.

"There really is something for everyone!" Pepe added.

The Country Fair and Craft Show is Hallockville's biggest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds will support the not-for-profit's education programs, historic restoration, special exhibits, upkeep of 19 historic buildings on 28 acres of preserved land, farm animals and more.

Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 5-12, and a special family rate (two adults and two children) is available for $20.

Hallockville Museum Farm is located at 6038 Sound Avenue in Riverhead. For more information, call 631-298-5292 or visit hallockville.com.
