On the Common Hardwick, Massachusetts

The 254th Hardwick Fair is dedicated to and in memory of Micky DiMartino.
Micky ran the baking exhibits for many years, saving all the recipes that she assembled into a Hardwick Fair Cookbook for the 250th anniversary of the fair. She was a member of the board, and jumped in whenever and wherever needed.

Conducted by the Hardwick Community Fair Association, Inc. a 501(c)(3) organization,
with assistance from the Calvin Paige Agricultural Fund and other local organizations.

President's message:
The Hardwick Fair is a place where old-timers and newcomers gather to renew old friendships and acquaintances; many traveling great distances. It is a traditional Colonial-style country fair with an agricultural theme . . . check out the program. The Common has a variety of activities; many free and others inexpensive, bringing together a blend of old and new. It's a family event where children can enjoy themselves and so can their parents, without emptying their pockets. Check out the Kids Only section for details and a schedule of events, like the Frog Jumping Competition. Other buildings around the Common display art, photography, and crafts created by local folks. The Old Town Hall has displays of baked goods, flowers, and vegetables, all competing for the illusive Blue Ribbon. The Fair culminates in an auction of all perishable exhibits, where even "Aunt Mable's Blue Ribbon-winning blueberry cake" goes to the highest bidder.   — Fay Butler, President
