One of America’s Oldest Community Fairs

In 1839 the “Ladies of East Lexington” held a fair to raise funds “to aid in the erection of a Christian Church in East Lexington.” That first fair included a toy shop for children and entertainment by the Brigade Band. The tradition has continued almost every year since. At right, 1951 fair-goers celebrate with 19th century costumes.
