Back to the Peru Fair

On Saturday Dave and I are going to the Peru Fair, which is my favorite fall event in Vermont. The fair, held on Main Street in the small town of Peru, features artists, musicians, performers and a wildly popular pig roast (the fair’s logo is actually a pig).

The fair started in 1978 as the “end of the world tag sale.” If I had to describe the Peru Fair today, I would say it’s timeless and a little off-beat – just like Vermont.

    Does Sam Johnson from the Hapgood Store have anything to do with roasting the pig?

    Hi Baydog — I don’t know! I’ll see if I can find out when I’m there.

    Hope you are doing well!

    Howdy Erica..I picture of the musicians reminds of some of the folks from the Mission Mountain Wood Band from Montana. They had a great Blue Grass band and they used to tour around the country. The Peru fair sounds like great fun!

    I hope you had a great time Erica! I don’t know about Vermont but it sure is some warm and humid here along the coast of NH today. Yuk!

    To Baydog, the pigs are roasted by the Peru Volunteer Fire Dept, and they were delicious!
