40th craft show kicks off fair season here
When the 40th Annual Ephrata Merchants Association Arts and Craft and Restaurant comes to downtown Ephrata this Saturday, it will officially open fair season locally.
More than 100 vendors and restaurants are booked to set up here Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Included among them are those offering jewelry, candles, pocketbooks, woodworking, photography, wreaths, glasswork, beaded work, children’s items, pet accessories, crochet items and more. The commercial items will be on North State Street and all stands will be on Main Street from Washington Avenue to Church Street. There will also be music at the Whistle Stop Plaza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. by Joe Lerman and his guitar.
The craft show is family-friendly and community oriented – a perfect opportunity to shop, not just the fair, but Ephrata downtown stores will be open and many will have sidewalk sale items.
The craft fair also offers plenty of free parking in borough-owned lots. For more information, visit ephratamerchants.com or Ephrata Area Merchants on Facebook.
Then just a few days after the craft show packs up and leaves town for another year, just a few miles to the north, a week-long fair will begin.
The 32nd Annual Denver Fair gets underway Tuesday, Sept. 10 at Denver Park. A full week of activities, food, fun and agriculture is slated – please see the Cocalico In Review section, starting on page A-9, for full details.
Then there will be a full week to catch your breath before the big one comes rolling into Ephrata.
The 95th Annual Ephrata Fair arrives Tuesday, Sept. 24 in downtown Ephrata and Tom Grater Park. Like Denver, a wide variety of attractions and events are sure to please everyone in the family – from all the rides downtown, pig and rooster chases on Tuesday night, the grand parade on Wednesday, Kiddies Day Thursday, the Baby Parade Saturday and of course the star each year – all the food available in downtown as well as Tent City. More details of the big week will be coming in upcoming editions of The Review.
