The Fair At New Boston
Step 200 years back in time at the 32th Annual Fair at New Boston! Everything about this quality event creates the illusion of time travel to 1790 - 1814.
Your full day of historical adventure will begin with cheering and huzzahs, as the 15 star flag is raised over the Fair ground, at opening ceremonies. Visitors won’t want to miss this entertaining introduction to the Fair. Stay around to hear food vendors brag about the quality of their delicacies and merchants urging the Fairmasters to stop by their booths.
Fairgoers will have a hard time deciding where to turn next. There is so much to do!
Grand Camera Obscura
Fair attendees can be among a relatively fortunate few who can enjoy this historical scientific attraction, which is just like the one seen in Paris more than 200 years ago. Step into the round tent and be prepared to be amazed.
Artisans, and Merchants
Explore the unique shops that surround the public square. Discover pottery, herbs, dried flowers, handmade chairs, silhouettes, soaps, jewelry and more. The tinsmith, blacksmith, spinners and linen makers will be busy at their crafts.
Don’t miss the HOT AIR BALLOON LAUNCH, frontier STORYTELLERS , the COMEDY Tartuffe, PUPPETS, MAGICIANS and BALLADEERS!
FOOD AND BEVERAGES! Come hungry to the Fair! Enjoy frontier foods prepared as they were back then. Pork chops, turkey legs, sausages, buffalo meat, chicken and noodles, bean soup, corn, peaches and pound cake, raspberries and cream, creampuffs, bread and butter, pies, green beans and potatoes, cheese bits, and much more will delight even the pickiest eaters.
Why is the Fair at New Boston recognized as a premiere living history event? All the music, entertainment, clothing, methods of cooking, foods served, merchandise booths, and equipment used by the artisans are juried (or judged) to assure authenticity to the period. It is also special because it is held on an actual historic site. The site of the Battle of Peckuwe and the Shawnee villages of Peckuwe and Kispoko and later the town of New Boston. All are now gone and are replaced by George Rogers Clark Park.
