There’s something for everyone when you Re-Discover The Lucketts Fair. After 45 years of practice we now have third generation visitors!
FOR THE FAMILY
Enjoy world-class Bluegrass music that is made in America. Sit in the shade with a lemonade and tap your toes and maybe get on your feet for a country jig! The gazebo will be alive with music morning and afternoon all weekend.
This year we will have Border Collies do what they do best– bring in the sheep! Come to the ball field to see the handlers work their prized dogs with a flock of sheep. Watch any of the following great demonstrators:
Bridle Baths: equine assisted activities and therapeutics
Goose Creek Ruggers: traditional rug hooking
The Humane Society of Loudoun: information about animal adoption and other programs
Loudoun Beekeepers: display beehives and demonstrate how they make honey
Master Gardeners of Loudoun: literature on proper horticultural practices
Penguin Forge: blacksmithing and anvil work
Rockdale Forge: ironwork in the early American style
The Waterford Quilters’ Guild: quilt and raffle a homemade quilt
Waterford Wool: spin wool and demonstrate different types of wool
We have several authors over the two days of the Fair to discuss, sell and sign their books, including:
David Reimer, Sr.
They have written books about the Civil War, books for children, local history and murder mysteries– something for everyone!
