Fearrington Founders Festival
GP Large Room and Parking Lot

May 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

All residents and previous residents are invited to the biggest Fearrington event in years! The Fearrington Founders Festival commemorates the founding of Fearrington Village in 1974 and will highlight our unique history with a celebration that includes a flashback to the music and fads of the ‘70s. Join in the festivities that are being organized by the FHA in conjunction with Fearrington Cares, the Swim & Croquet Club, and Women of Fearrington.

There will be ‘70s music, a unique entertainer, a history exhibit, a Club Fair, a reunion of past Fearrington residents, children’s activities, door prizes and more!

The Swim & Croquet Club will be offering a croquet demonstration and be open for guests to dine poolside with fare from three visiting food trucks—Mexican, ice cream and a microbrew beer truck!

Fearrington Cares will be serving up specialty drinks at their “mocktail bar” and presenting a silent auction and a flashback photo booth.  Join in the fun as dance instructor Bruce Gillooly leads ‘70s line dancing at 4 pm.

Note: There will only be limited parking available at The Gathering Place.  Additional spots can be found at the Farmers’ Market area, the parking lanes on East and West Camden, and other nearby county roads. Passengers can be dropped off at The Gathering Place entrance. Please carpool, walk or take the event shuttle service which will run continuously from the Farmers’ Market and Barnyard. While you wait, visit with the Belties and Farmer Bob who will be offering barnyard Q&A from 3-5 pm.

Fabulous door prizes are compliments of Fitch Creations and Amy Ghiloni of Re/Max United. Be sure to thank them and our event sponsors—Log Out Tree Service, Meta Tibke Realty, and Brigitte Condoret of Century 21 Lifestyles—for contributing to our community celebration!
