42nd Annual Horseshed Fair!
Saturday September 30, 2017
10am - 4pm
The upcoming annual Horseshed Fair draws hundreds of visitors from throughout northern Worcester County to the grounds of First Church of Christ Unitarian in Lancaster. In addition to a wide range of craft items displayed by more than 60 independent vendors, church members make over 100 pies, ranging from apple to cherry and blueberry and apple crisp.
A baked goods kitchen, now inside the Community Hall, offers additional goods-cookies, breads, baked beans, fruit rollovers, cupcakes and more. The outdoor Lunch Box provides burgers, hot dogs, chili and nachos. In addition to the usual selection of soft drinks, coffee, iced tea and water, last year the fair added selections from Wachusett Brewery, and the crew will do so again this year. There will also be fresh Vermont cheddar for sale.
New this year is a gift basket raffle with such items as holiday decorations, coffees, chocolates and crafts.
Children from the church's Religious Education group provide face painting, games and treats especially for younger visitors.
There is no cost of admission, but there is plenty of fun. The fair is the church's largest annual fundraiser.
