Join in the festivities on Friday, May 5 from 2:00 – 6:00 pm as we celebrate the founding of Fearrington Village in 1974 and the funky fads of 1970s.  The festival will be held in and around The Gathering Place and will feature a special “Skywalker” entertainer, ‘70s music, an exhibit of our Village history, a Club Fair showcasing a variety of Fearrington clubs, poolside dining with a croquet demo, a reunion of former villagers, and children’s activities. Fearrington Cares will host a mocktail bar, silent auction, a flashback Photo Booth and introduction to our Village StoryCorps project.  At 4 pm, there will  be ‘70s line dancing—and instruction if you don’t remember the moves!

The visiting food trucks will include El Chicano dishing up Mexican fare and American cookout favorites, Hugger Mugger Brewing serving specialty beer on draft, and Alsies offering ice cream treats. Complimentary bottled water and cookies will be also be available.
