Sat. Sept. 26, 2020: Colonial Faire and Fife & Drum Muster

2020 Pandemic status

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Sudbury Ancient Fyfe and Drum Muster.  We are hopeful that we will be able to gather in some form, safely, to mark the occasion on Saturday, September 26, 2020. 
Our plans continue to be fluid and cautious.  We will be watching how the situation continues to develop over the summer.  We do know that there will be no Colonial Faire this year.  We plan to wait to make a judgement on all of the other components of our weekend of events as late as we possibly can (most likely late August). ​

In normal times we would have suggested that you join us on the grounds of the historic Longfellow’s Wayside Inn for a full day of music, muskets, history, and fun.

The Faire opens at 10:00 with a Colonial encampment, militia and crafts demonstrations, and contradancing. We expect dozens of colonial and craft vendors and 25 fife and drum corps from across New England and New York. Food is available on the field.

The Grand Parade of fifes and drums will begin promptly at noon and will be followed directly by a performance by each of the corps attending. The muster is a celebration rather than a competition: The corps are appearing by invitation, and attend to share their music and friendship. Come enjoy the music and remember our Colonial heritage.

Thanks to all who made the 2019 muster so much fun! We look forward to seeing you again the last Saturday in September, 2020
