10E2598: 36th Peru Fair - Saturday, September 23, 2017

"The Peru Fair began in 1978 as the “end of the world tag sale.” but what had evolved is not what a tag-saler would ever dream of.  Each year approximately 100 exhibitors converge on the tiny village of Peru, Vermont located off Route 11...
Early morning of the fair, booths, displays, and crafts are set up, smells of food begin to stretch across and before too long, the parade of whimsical characters officially opens the Fair and music and entertainment fill the air. 
Proceeds of the Fair are donated to the Peru Scholarship Fund. The Peru Scholarship Fund is a non-profit organization that distributes educational scholarships to the children of Peru for higher education." - Via PeruFair.Org

There is a full-on pig roast ($15) and plenty of other food vendors around, hay and pony rides, music, demos and clogging. What else do you need? $6 entry donation to the Town of Peru Scholarship Fund. No dogs. Opening parade starts at 9:45 - coffee onsite.

You'd think Mid September in southern Vermont might be cool but it often happens to be a blazing hot day. Pace yourself beer-tent-animals...   Bring a bag of some kind for your homestead syrup haul. The roast lunch is pretty decent...
