Music for All Ages at the Waterford Fair!  
Musical highlights this year include bluegrass favorites Patent Pending and The Seldom Scene, as well as Furnace Mountain Band.  Patent Pending, has played in the area for 30 years and is known for its tight harmonies and energetic picking. The Seldom Scene has been a fixture in the area's bluegrass arena for more than four decades.  Renowned for its urban approach to bluegrass and using a Dobro resonator guitar instead of a fiddle, the group does not shy away from rock classics and other unexpected material.

There will be other music filling the crisp autumn air as well as organ grinders, troubadours, a magician, mimes and other local favorites!

Considering The Waterford Fair's live music and entertainment line up the fair's $16 advance daily ticket price is a bargain!

New & Old at the Schooley Mill Area
This year, the Art and Photography Exhibits are moving to a new larger location at Schooley Mill Barn.  This new location provides more space to display these popular exhibits collectively.  For those who may be beginning a collection or adding to an existing one, the Schooley Mill Barn is the place to visit for original art. 

The Antique Farming Equipment Exhibit returns to the Schooley Mill Barn area to the delight of young and old. Also, the wine garden returns featuring 6 Loudoun wineries, and newly added locally brewed craft beer.  

This area remains as the home to a beekeeper, cheesemaker and maple syrup producer but will also showcase local farms and food producers, giving fairgoers an additional option for sustenance while connecting directly with members of the local farming community.
