Things are hopping this summer in the Antietam Valley, and the fun continues on Saturday, June 30th with the sixth annual Antietam Valley Street Fair in Stony Creek. This year’s fair has new vendors, new activities and fun for the whole family. Running along Friedensburg Road from Antietam Road at Bixler’s through the 1100 Block at Melrose Avenue, the fair features over 60(!) food, craft and game vendors. The fair begins at 11am and ends at 4pm.
This year’s activities include pony rides, live music, children’s games, jewelry and crafts, a pie eating contest, live animals, a beer tent, Ducky Race down the Antietam Creek, and, of course, food vendors. Proceeds from the day will go to support improvements to historic Carsonia Park in Pennside.
