The Fort Frederick 18th Century Market Fair
April 25, 2024 – April 28, 2024
The annual Fort Frederick 18th Century Market Fair features the best period artisans, craftspeople, and sutlers together with an 18th Century encampment. Explore Maryland’s French and Indian War-era stone fort built in 1756. See hundreds of reenactors and 18th-century sutlers (vendors) selling 18th C. period wares: paintings & prints, clothing & fabric, books, camp gear, muskets, fireplace & cooking hardware, lanterns, copperware, etc.
Through their participation at the Market Fair and their many and varied portrayals of 18th-century personas and life, our event participants provide a taste of what it was like to ‘go to the fair’ in colonial America. The Fort Frederick Market Fair is an excellent opportunity to learn about or increase one’s knowledge of the French and Indian War and the role that historic Fort Frederick played in that conflict and as a bastion on the Maryland frontier during and after that struggle.
