Newtown Historic Association 40th Annual Market Day @ Half Moon Inn
Oct 1 all-day

The Newtown Historic Association will be hosting its 40th annual Market Day. A craft and art fair, on Saturday, October 1st, from 10am – 4pm. It will be held on the streets in and around the heart of historic Newtown.  The Newtown Historic Association’s headquarters, the Half Moon Inn at 105 Centre Avenue (Court Street and Centre Avenue), will be open for tours.  Market Day celebrates an old harvest tradition in Newtown when farmers brought their crops to town to sell and to enjoy a festive day of friendly contests that culminated with a horse race down State Street.

For four decades the Newtown Historic Association has celebrated Market Day.  Thanks to our many sponsors this anniversary year, NHA is able to offer our community a fun-filled family day.  Market Day is expanding to State Street and will include non-profit organizations and local businesses. We are grateful this year for our primary sponsor Rothman Institute.

 There are over 85 crafters, demonstrators and artists offering a wide variety of interesting crafts. Demonstrations will include: carpentry, blacksmithing, quilting, dressmaking, gunsmithing.  

In the historic Boone Garden, across from the Half Moon Inn, the Penn’s Wood Puppeteers will be performing “Captain Crook and the Missing Treasure” at 11:00am, 1:00pm and 3:00pm.  Colonial candle dipping, a children’s participation event, will begin at noon in the Boone Garden. New for this year will be a Balloon Artist who will be creating balloon art from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Scarecrow-making for children, will be held inside the Half Moon Inn from 10:30am to 3:30om. “A Better Way Farm” and their team of Belgian draft horses and wagon will provide horse drawn hayrides by the Newtown Library.  The hayrides are free this year thanks to the sponsorship of Harris Comfort and Oxford Valley Pain and Spine.

The First Crossing Volunteers – a colonial militia revolutionary war encampment will be camped in the backyard of the Half Moon (Court Inn).  A colonial gunsmith and dressmaker will also be there demonstrating their trades. Colonial Open Hearth Cooking will be demonstrated by Connie Unangst in the Half Moon Inn all day.

At the NHA Welcome Tables at both Court and Congress Streets will be assorted contests and guessing games, including the Corn Husking contest at 1:30 pm.   NHA Market Day T-shirts will be on sale for $5 and there is a limited supply. The raffle this year is a $400 gift certificate to use toward a weekend at the historic “Queen Victoria Bed and Breakfast Inn”, Cape May, New Jersey.  Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.

The “Full Moon Musicians” will be performing Colonial tunes in the Half Moon Inn from 10 am to Noon. “Bill Dooley and the Coyotes” will be performing a selection of folk music in front of the Half Moon Inn throughout the day starting at 11:30am through 4 pm.

The Festival of Foods will feature local Newtown restaurants and offer delicious luncheon treats. The special kettle corn vendor “Best Darn Kettle Korn” will be here again.  Local fresh farm produce and autumnal decorations will be available in the Farmers Market on Court Street.

To help with parking this year, there will be a free shuttle bus provided by Pickering Manor Home.   The shuttle will provide transport for our visitors to get from the New Life Christian Church parking lot to Market Day and back.  The New Life Christian Church is located at 4 Freedom Drive, (off of S. State St.) Newtown, PA 18940.   The buses will run from 10:00am to 4:30pm.  The bus is handicap accessible.  There is also street parking in town and several public parking lots.

The Newtown Library’s 5K Fun Run will also be taking place Saturday morning at 8:30 am, so come on out to Newtown and enjoy a fun-filled day with all your friends and neighbors.  For more information call 215-968-4004 or email [email protected]

Doylestown Farmers’ Market @ Doylestown Farmers' Market
Oct 1 @ 7:00 am – 12:00 pm

An award-winning, three-season, something-for-everyone, canopied Doylestown Farmers’ Market will be back for its 41st season in the middle of April. Conveniently situated in the heart of Doylestown on South Hamilton Street off of West State Street, this market will entertain you while you shop.

There will be live music, children’s crafts and some surprising new vendors, including folks selling old-fashioned candy, medicinal herbs, guacamole and goat’s milk soap. Of course, don’t forget to browse through the book exchange to find the perfect free book, and, if you have your dog with you, don’t forget to stop off for water and a doggie treat from the Buckingham Civic Association, the market sponsor and organizer.

Every Saturday morning from 7 a.m. until noon, rain or shine, from mid-April through mid-November, several dozen vendors come to the market with their produce, prepared foods, baked goods, coffee beans, condiments, dairy, eggs, meats, plants and handmade crafts.

Best of all, you can chat with those vendors and ask them questions. Our vendors have an enormous amount of expertise. All you have to do is ask and you can learn amazing things from these incredibly hard working individuals.

Somehow, when you have spoken with the people who raised the lettuces for your salad, the eggs and mushrooms for your omelet and the meat for your dinner, your meals take on a very special dimension—and your desserts will be luscious if you stop by the bakery.

Come shop at the Doylestown Farmers’ Market. We all have to eat—and what a treat it is to enjoy local bounty. Remember: “Buy Local, Save Bucks”®

Bucks County Genealogical Society meeting and program @ David Library of the American Revolution
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

“Great-Grandpa Bought a Bridge: Genealogical Scams, Frauds and Hoaxes” will be presented by Gideon Hill. Deception in genealogy has a long history. Unfortunately for the modern researcher, the legacy of genealogists who were less than honest may impact the results of our efforts even today. This presentation will evaluate deception in the context of the Genealogical Proof Standard while taking a bemused, retrospective look at some of the more notable scams, frauds, and hoaxes from the past.

Our Beginner’s Corner, genealogy store and socializing begin at 9:30. We will be selling 25% off shopping passes to Boscov’s for us on Oct. 18th at any location, for just $5!
