2020 Pandemic status – no muster this year
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 traditionally 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, 2021
