Century Market Fair At Ft. Frederick Maryland

"Colonel Washington's Frontier Forts Association" Century Market Fair at Fort Frederick Maryland.

Ines & I had the chance on Saturday (April 26th)to visit Ft. Frederick in Big Pool Maryland after our morning portrait sessions.We were invited by our good friends Art & Linda Winder with Shenandoah Carriage Company.

Art was camping there since Wednesday in authentic costume andgear for the colonial 1700's period. (Except for food, I saw there larder and itwas quite plush). Art was participating in an event called the Century MarketFair sponsored by the above association. There appeared to be 50 plussutlers with their tents and goods and you really felt like you had entered atime machine back to the colonial period and a trading camp on the frontier.

Each of the participants prided themselves on using materials that existed at that time period. We will definitely plan on attending again next year if our wedding schedule permits as this is a great opportunity for a fun yet educational day. It brings that period to life and has relevance for families and a wonderful photo opportunity for any photographer. Check out the association web-site for more information on future events and also don't forget to check out the Shenandoah Carriage Company website if you want a carriage for your own event.

This link is a slide show of a few of the images from that day.
