Still today folks of all ages travel far and wide to attend The Sandwich Fair, which by the way, started out as an agricultural event. Local farmers hoped it would turn into an annual market day where they could trade and sell their cattle. Much has happened since August of 1887! Today the fair runs from Friday evening Columbus Day weekend through Monday. Join the fun and more
