The Fair is held in the National Historic Landmark village of Waterford. This unique setting gives the 80 juried, heritage and contemporary artisans, accepted as Demonstrating Artisans, a beautiful backdrop to demonstrate, sell their products and cultivate lasting relationships with loyal buyers.
 
The 12,000+ Fair visitors enjoy strolling the streets of the Landmark, taking in the history of this 18th c. Quaker village, touring historic homes, learning about the Artisans and their work, and purchasing their wares. Fair organizers cater to all artistic preferences and budgets of the attendees. The result is a tasteful selection of high-quality, handmade items juried in ten (10) media categories.
 
Founded in 1733, Waterford is situated in western Loudoun County, DC’s wine country. For the past twelve years Loudoun County, Virginia has been name the #1 county in America for the highest median household income. In 2021 income was reported to be $156,821 according to U.S. Census Bureau reports. The second highest rated county, Fairfax, is our easterly neighbor.
 
The funds raised by the Waterford Fair support the preservation and education efforts of the Waterford Foundation, a 501(c)(3).  Over the years, artisans have come to appreciate the warmth of the “Waterford welcome” and the support they receive from our well-educated and loyal clientele, villagers, and volunteers. Many artisans take advantage of our Homestay Program and stay with local residents, foregoing hotels and the associated expenses.
