The annual Falmouth Rotary Craft fair is back! And this year promises to be even better with a great local entertainment lineup. As soon as we saw the famous Ms. Amy from Mother Goose on the Loose we cleared our calendars for Sunday for a nice relaxing story hour! Other entertainment will include their FAMOUS Old Time Fiddler Contest as well as a Fishing Derby for Kids, a USA Kung Fu Demo, Frank O’Rourke, a local musician, and dance demonstrations by Cape Cod Dance Center and the Falmouth Dance Academy. Eash year we attend this event to get some early holiday shopping done and to relax and enjoy some time with our local friends while enjoying the lively atmosphere!
For more information on the Old Time Fiddler Contest visit their event page here. And don't forget to check out the video below of the couple who fiddled last year!
As you know Rotary is a cause near and dear to our hearts. Their motto of Service Above Self and the 4 Way Test is one we try every day to abide by. We began covering the Craft Fair in 2012 with our Video tour of the event including highlighting those delicious apple cider donuts!
The Falmouth Rotary Club, both globally and locally contributes so much good in the world including the local scholarships they give away and the upcoming Guatemalan school project that you will be hearing TONS about in the fall as our local kids (Falmouth) will be contributing. The local Falmouth Club donated the helicopter landing pad at Falmouth Hospital, the parking lot at Spohr Gardens, and they raised over $10,000 in the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake to Shelterboxes for people to live in. Rotary is a great organization and we encourage you to support your local groups all over Cape Cod and the world as they seek to better the world we live in.
Falmouth Rotary Announces 14th Annual Crafts & Antique Fair;
Over 2,500 Expected to Attend
Old-Time Fiddle Contest Featured
The Falmouth Rotary announces that it will hold its 14th annual Crafts Fair, September 13th and 14th, at the Falmouth Marine Park “Band Shell”. Hours for the fair are 8am- 4pm both Saturday and Sunday.
“The Rotary’s Annual Crafts Fair is a family event and has become a tremendous success,” said Rotary President Rich Edes. The fair attracts over 2,500 people, over the 2 day events, who shop at over 60 vendor booths.
“With so many booths and a wide variety of products, the fair delivers a great consumer event, with vendors offering antique furnishings, hand-made and estate jewelry, as well as china and glassware. Each year we sell out our booth allotment, said the Rotary spokesman
The event will feature a judged “Old-Time Fiddle Contest” with over a dozen fiddlers competing. This year Falmouth Rotary has expanded their entertainment schedule to include a Fishing Derby for Kids, a USA Kung Fu Demo, Frank O’Rourke, a local musician, dance demonstrations by Cape Cod Dance Center and the Falmouth Dance Academy, and a Mother Goose on the Loose session with the popular Ms. Amy!
“We expect that this musical highlight will add additional sparkle to an already lively fair. Last year’s Fiddle Contest and other entertainment was a tremendous success and was well attended,” said Edes.
“The Craft Fair, in its 14th year, is now a tradition and is one of the most visible ways Falmouth Rotarians support their community,” said Edes. Proceeds from the Craft Fair help Rotary fund its’ scholarships for Falmouth students, efforts to support clean waters and Rotary’s worldwide effort to eradicate polio.
“Founded in 1927, Falmouth Rotary is very active in our community in both large and small ways,” said Edes. Besides, through our scholarships the Falmouth Rotary has helped the East Falmouth Elementary School expand its math and sciences book collection, helped expand parking at Spohr Gardens, has donated funds to VIPS(Volunteers in Public Schools), funded the sign at the Gus Canty center and the kiosk at the Town Hall.
“Falmouth Rotary efforts even made the helicopter pad at Falmouth Hospital a reality,” said Edes.
Entry is just $2.00 and offers an affordable day of fun for the entire family, he added.
