GEORGETOWN — Georgetown Working League’s annual fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 12, at Georgetown Central School, 52 Bay Point Road. This perennially popular event offers fairgoers the opportunity to shop, dine, and possibly win a hand-stitched art quilt inspired by the art of Georgetown resident Dahlov Ipcar.

The extensive white elephant areas (both indoors and outside) include glassware, china, linens, home decor items, small furniture, small appliances, electronics, garden items, and toys. Antiques and collectibles are spotlighted in a special area.

The gift boutique features hand-crafted favorites such as Maine balsam bags, seashore wreaths, baby quilts, knitted items, and much more. The jewelry area offers an array of classic and retro pieces.

A silent auction presents the chance to bid on the work of local artisans, products from local businesses, and unique experiences in Georgetown. Outside booths showcase the creations of local artists and craftspeople, including painters, photographers, woodworkers, jewelry-makers, basket weavers, paper artists, sculptors, and more.

Several Maine children’s authors will be on hand to meet kids and their families and autograph their books.

A popular sit-down luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. offers a choice of fresh lobster or turkey salad, along with pasta salad, fresh fruit, blueberry cake, and a selection of beverages. Hot dogs are also available. Baked goods tables will be laden with homemade pies, cookies, brownies, cakes, fudge, cupcakes, bread, scones, cheese spread, and four-bean salad.

The prize of the day is this year’s hanging art quilt, titled “Call of the Loon,” a tribute to the late, beloved, Georgetown artist, children’s author and illustrator, and icon of the art world Dahlov Ipcar. The focal point of the quilt is a fabric interpretation of the loon gracing the cover of one of Ipcar’s children’s books. Raffle tickets for the quilt will be available all day, with the winning ticket drawn at the close of the fair. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for a book of seven.

All proceeds from the fair go to student scholarships and town services, including the volunteer fire department, programs benefiting students at Georgetown Central School, community center, Laura E. Richards Library, and Georgetown Historical Society.

The fair takes place rain or shine. Admission and parking are free. Credit cards are accepted in most areas. For more information, visit
