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.
Today, Follen’s October fall festival fair joins nearby Waldorf School, Wilson Farms, and the Lexington Historical Society to celebrate our heritage and welcome the harvest. The fair includes a big flea market, children’s games, food hot and cold, produce, pies, cheese, crafts, music, and much more.
