Alexandria, Va., to stage an 18th century fair


September 08, 1991

Market Square in Alexandria, Va., will be filled with hawkers and peddlers, merchants, musicians and members of the militia as Gadsby's Tavern Museum re-creates an 18th century fair from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

You can participate in an auction, learn the latest dance steps, attend a court session, watch a militia muster, hear campaign speeches, watch a theater production, buy crafts and enjoy 18th century fare. Children can play old-fashioned games and see an 18th century puppet show.

The fair is free, but a donation is suggested. There is also a small admission fee to tour Gadsby's Tavern Museum at 134 N. Royal St. For information, call (703)838-4242.
