NEW for 2024!

Friday, October 4th from 3:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. join us for our first Tavern Night! Live music, delicious food, and a drink in your hand is the perfect way to start the fall season!

Market Fair brings the colonial past to life in this annual, highly-anticipated special event! Walk the ground where 18th century Doverites went to market, browsing among historic trade demonstrators, local and regional vendors selling their food and wares, and talented performers sweeping you back through the centuries.

This event is FREE to attend, so we hope you’ll consider spending the day with us on a true historical adventure! With dozens of market stalls, demonstrations and performers, we recommend setting aside several hours for your visit. Please also wear good walking shoes and dress for the weather!
