20th Century Club's 39th Annual Fair on the Square, Collierville, Tennessee

 

 

Collierville, Tennessee (April 10, 2014) - The thirty-ninth annual Collierville Fair on the Square will be held May 3-4, 2014, in the Collierville, Tennessee, Town Square. The hours are May 3, 10-6, May 4, Noon to 5. Admission is free to visitors.

 

First held in 1976 as a part of the United States Bicentennial celebrations, the fair is an eagerly awaited family festival sponsored by the Collierville Twentieth Century Club.  The charming town square is the backdrop for approximately 170 vendors who set up their tents in the park to sell hand-made items such as children's clothing and toys, wood and pottery wares, jewelry, bakery items, garden decorations, candles, and many other items appropriate for Mother's Day gifts or simply a gift to oneself.

 

Hungry fair visitors can find foods ranging from corn dogs to nachos, to pizza to barbecue to crepes as well as popcorn, funnel cakes and other traditional fair foods. Many visitors sit down to eat and watch the continuous entertainment at the Collierville train depot provided by children from local schools, singers from local churches, area bands, solo singers, and children and adult dancers.

 

The Fair also provides children's activities.  The little ones can get their faces painted, ride a choo-choo train, visit the petting zoo, climb a rock wall, jump in a moon bounce, and play games.

 

The Twentieth Century Club, a nonprofit organization, is a women's civic club started on January 25, 1950.  The proceeds from the Fair are returned to the community in the form of grants.
