Exhibit Open August 28, 2019 - June 14, 2020
Roll up, roll up! to the Chatham-Kent Museum's brand new exhibit, "Carnivals! Festivals! Fairs! Oh My!" opening August 28, 2019. Get ready to celebrate all things fairs in Chatham-Kent! From the Jaycee Fair and the Dresden Exhibition to the Merlin Fair and Blenheim Cherry Fest, there is something for everyone at this fun- filled, interactive exhibit.
Running until June 2020, "Carnivals! Festivals! Fairs! Oh My!" will not only have you discovering the history of Chatham-Kent's fairs by examining artifacts, costumes, photographs and more, but also "experiencing" it. You can perform on stage, play carnival games, hop on the "merry-go-round," or even milk a cow! Oh My!
Fairs are a time for communities to come together to share, explore, and celebrate, so come one, come all to "Carnivals! Festivals! Fairs! Oh My!"
The Chatham-Kent Museum is located at the Chatham Cultural Centre, 75 William Street North, Chatham. The museum is open Wednesday to Friday from 1:00PM to 7:00PM and Saturday and Sunday from 11:00AM to 4:00PM.
