The third annual Ellison’s Heritage Fair is raising funds for the Olive Tree Project for mothers and babies in Haiti.

Ellison’s Heritage Fair

The 1930s farmers, costumes, live music and hay bales add an air of charm to the third annual heritage fair at Ellison's Market.

The fair at Ellison’s Market and Cafe has an extra air of charm and heaps of heritage in part because is a 1930s farmer costume theme. Live music by the likes of Jenny and the Jets entertained the crowd sitting on hay bale benches as will the games, prizes and cute small animals to adore until 6 p.m. this evening.

The fundraiser barbecue for the Olive Tree Project for mothers and babies in Haiti has local vendors, a petting zoo, horse carriage rides, antique cars such as Barry Conklin’s  1930 Ford Model A,  and activities for kids.

Grab your partner for a little bit of square dancing with Mountain Station and Bob Dean at Ellison’s at 523 Front Street.
