Special Exhibit: Come to the Faire!

Celebrating 50 years of Chadds Ford Days

May 28 - December 5, 2015
Barn Visitors Center


The Chadds Ford Historical Society is celebrating the Colonial Faire, Chadds Ford Days. Begun in 1958 as a way to raise awareness of the historical and cultural heritage of the area, the celebration has grown over the years from a one day to a two day event. Throughout the years, the event has remained true to preserving the area's colonial roots with revolutionary re-enactors, authentic colonial crafts and demonstrations as well as an art exhibit which exemplifies the unique cultural heritage of Chadds Ford begun by the Wyeths.


This new exhibit will showcase objects and photographs from the last five decades of history. It will mix one part history and one part nostalgia with some fun thrown in for good measure. The exhibit runs through December 5.
