Planning is underway for May Faire 2024, a spring heritage festival put on by the Mathews Historical Museum and which will be held for the sixth year.
The theme for May 4, 2024, is “A Rural Life.”
The festival will be held on and around Mathews Court Green, and at the museum, which is located at 200 Main Street.
May Faire 2024 chair Barbara Bass said the event will be “very much like an old-fashioned county fair. It will provide an opportunity to remember and celebrate the past and raise awareness of our greatest historical treasures and peoples. We anticipate a variety of educational booths as well as our traditional events.”
