The Waterford Homes Tour and Crafts Exhibit


Editorial Review

The Waterford Homes Tour and Crafts Exhibit, better known as the annual Waterford Fair, takes place in a historic village in Loudoun County. The fair features crafts from 155 juried artisans and includes pottery, weaving, painting and sketching. Many artisans will show children how to make their crafts. Troubadours and barber shop quartets might serenade you as you walk the main street, nibbling on local artisan cheeses and homemade baked goods. Or pop into the fair’s newest addition, a wine garden highlighting eight Loudoun wineries.

The fair also features hayrides, tours of the village and Civil War reenactments.

“This is not just a family event,” says Meghan Blackburn, the fair’s media representative. “It’s for people into history, people who are artsy. It’s an interesting smattering of people.”
