On Saturday, Oct. 8, travel with the Department of Aging & Human Services to the National Historic Landmark Village of Waterford, Virginia, and step back in time. The Waterford Homes Tour and Crafts Exhibit is the oldest juried crafts fair in Virginia and four-time winner of the Loudoun Convention & Visitors Association Best Event of the Year. In addition to historic homes open for tour, 155 juried heritage craftspeople (many nationally known) provide hands-on demonstrations, entertainers provide continuous traditional music and dance, and Colonial and Civil War-era militia encamp and demonstrate. There really is something for everyone!
The Fair is held throughout the village on hilly streets and uneven ground, and the village is closed to automobile traffic. A good deal of walking is required, and most of the historic buildings and private houses on the tour are not wheelchair accessible. The Fair goes on rain or shine. Cost is $55 per person, and includes motor coach bus transportation, bus driver tip, snacks for return trip and ticket into the Fair (admission, tour houses and all exhibit buildings, all entertainment and re-enactments, and craft demonstrations). Pick up locations are Garvey Senior Activity Center at 7:30 a.m. and the Northern Senior Activity Center at 8 a.m. Approximate return time to Northern Senior Activity Center is 6 p.m. and the Garvey Senior Activity Center is 6:30 p.m. To learn more or to register, call 301-475-4200, ext. *1062.
