Re-discover The Lucketts Fair, a family friendly event which honors Lucketts’ agrarian roots. Enjoy Bluegrass music all weekend under the gazebo, thrill at the border collies herding sheep, take a load off and enjoy a hayride, let the little ones loose in the hay maze, squish grapes and sample the juice, dominate the mechanical bull, dance with the cloggers, visit with authors in the Reader’s Garden, shop at the juried crafters and artisans, explore for antiques, refuel on great fair food, squeeze some apple cider and so much more!

Join in the fun by entering the Best Fruit Pie, the Largest Vegetable and the Best Dressed Vegetable contests. Don’t miss the Cake Walk. Winners take home an amazing homemade cake. The Bakery is back and beckons you into the Old School auditorium for freshly baked goodies and a cup of knock your socks off coffee.

Visit with local non-profit organizations to learn about ways that they give back to the Lucketts community. Groups including The Journey Through Hallowed Ground, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, Equine Rescue League and Loudoun Beekeepers, among others, will demonstrate their missions through activities.

Bring the entire family, young, old and everyone in between. Stay the weekend- each day offers new country flavored delights.

Activities & Entertainment

Fiddles play and banjos ring all weekend at our Bluegrass Gazebo. Folks come from all over the Mid-Atlantic area to enjoy “Music Made in America”. Sit in the shade with your lemonade, tap your toes and even dance a lick if you’re so inclined. On the Community Center Stage, the Blue Ridge Thunder Cloggers will tap and stomp their way into your heart. They entertain, then invite you to join them on the stage for a fun introduction to the traditional dance of clogging.

The Lucketts Fair is a fantastic ensemble of entertainment, enrichment and education. Wisecracking Stiltwalkers breeze through the grounds, pony rides and other barnyard animals await the wee people, and the horse-drawn hayrides of Temple Hall Farm take families for a spin around the field. Border collies and their handlers will demonstrate their skill at herding sheep. You can try your hand at taming the mechanical bull. Local authors will discuss and sign their books in the Reader’s Garden. You can talk to experts about grapes and hops. Visit with many local non-profits to learn what they are doing in the Lucketts community.

Stop by the Lucketts Community Center Advisory Board tent to purchase mementos of the Fair. For a quarter you can enter the Cake Walk. For FREE you will marvel at the largest Zucchini and Tomato contest held under the Lucketts Community Center Advisory Board tent. For the ambitious, enter our Great Fruit Pie Baking Contest. It’ll be judged by real pastry chefs with cool prizes for winners in the Junior and Senior divisions. Loudoun Heritage Farm Museum returns with their beloved antique tractors, interactive displays and the hay maze for the pint-sized fair goers.
