This year ART is located at Schooley Mill Barn, on the southern end of the village. The new location provides more space to display works and will be hung collectively with the Fine Art exhibit. We are proud of the quality of the art that is offered at the Waterford Fair and expect the Schooley Mill Barn Exhibit to be a big hit with the Fair's approximately 20,000 visitors!
