FAIR – SATURDAY, AUGUST 15th
The Fair is an annual, old-time country fair done F&W style, with hand-powered rides, food, games, and concessions made by staff and campers. If this is your first year coming to Fair, you are in for a treat and if you’re a returning guest you know the magic this day holds! All visiting families, alumni, and guests will meet campers and staff for a fun day on the Fairgrounds. Join us for camp info sessions, visit specialty booths, watch performances and participate in the annual contra dance and fire lighting ceremony.
Please do not bring any pets on F&W property as we have livestock on our small, organic farm. Leaving pets in a car is not an option; please make arrangements in advance for your pets.
Look for F&W signage by the Killington Skyeship Lodge. Shuttles from the parking lot will run all day from 11am-8pm.
