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
