Dozens of volunteers have been working toward this date.

The following information was provided by the Lexington 300th Committee.

Did you know that at the 300th Anniversary Country Fair, you can purchase unique, hand-crafted items? 

Over the past 11 months, 75 volunteers have been knitting, crocheting, sewing, and designing arts and crafts that represent the past 300 years.
