ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL 18TH CENTURY MARKET FAIR!
On behalf of the Friends of Fort Frederick State Park and the Market Fair Committee, I want to express our appreciation to all of the sutlers and campers who participated in the 2015 18th Century Market Fair. I also want to thank the members of the public who, despite some challenging weather conditions, came out to attend the Fair and support this great historic site and our wonderful vendors. We greatly appreciate you joining us.
Through their participation at the Market Fair and their many and varied portrayals of 18th century personas and life, our event participants provide a taste of what it was like to ‘go to the fair’ in colonial America. The Fort Frederick Market Fair is an excellent opportunity to learn about, or increase ones knowledge of, the French and Indian War and the role that historic Fort Frederick played in both that conflict and as a bastion on the Maryland frontier during and after that struggle.
If this year’s Market Fair was your first visit to Fort Frederick, we hope that you enjoyed your visit, will come again and will tell others about this magnificent stone fort on the old frontier. For those of you who had visited before, we were glad to see you back and hope to see you again soon. If you wish to help the Friends of Fort Frederick in their mission to support and sponsor educational and recreational programs and resources at the Park, please consider joining our organization. Membership forms are available on this website under the ‘Join the Friends!’ link.
There are many fun and educational activities at Fort Frederick State Park throughout the season. Please visit the Park’s website at dnr2.maryland.gov/publiclands/Pages/western/fortfrederick.aspx for a full calendar of events.
