The 8th Annual Springwater Music Fair and American Crafts Show will be held Saturday, September 17, and Sunday, September 18, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., on the lovely ramble of Punky Hollow Farm (8277 Pardee Hollow Road in Wayland). This year's event is held in celebration of Springwater's Bicentennial, and will feature fiddling-focused live music, Finger Lakes regional artisans selling their wares, music workshops, food vendors, and kid-friendly activities — take the tykes for a woodland walk, and then use materials you've gathered to build fairy houses.
Musical acts include (on Saturday) The Brothers Blue, The Dady Brothers, Li'l Anne and Hot Cayenne, and The Buddhahood; and on Sunday, Howie Lester and Friends, Watkins and the Rapiers, The Crawdiddies, and Bobby Henrie and The Goners. Additional acts include Dutch Hollow Girls, Buffalo Suzuki String Kids, Tasty Parker, Knives and Forks, Allen Hopkins and Jim Clare, The String Chickens, and more.
The fair is a rain or shine, tented outdoor event. Admission is $10 per day; children younger than age 10 get in for free. To preview a full roster of musicians, artists, workshops, and other events, visit springwatermusicfair.org. Call 943-6616 with questions.
