The Melrose Victorian Fair, sponsored by the Melrose Chamber of Commerce, has been a major hometown event for the past 29 years. A day-long celebration, the Victorian Fair has become a beloved community tradition. The Victorian Fair attracts thousands of people to Main Street in Melrose and, this year the Fair will continue to bring local businesses, organizations and Melrose residents together for a joyful celebration of community.
Performance stages are set up at various spots featuring local performing artists as well as dances and demonstrations by Melrose children. Canopied booths beckon the public with games, crafts, food and prizes. It is not at all unusual to see a mini-golf course set up on Main Street! And, you will never leave the Victorian Fair hungry because local restaurants prepare tasty samplings for the crowds that roam the downtown area. The day's gala celebration is brought to a grand climax with the drawing of the Chamber's "Big Ticket" Raffle prizes. Fair goers, volunteers and business owners alike are united by the annual rekindling of the Yankee small-town community spirit fostered by the Melrose Victorian Fair, a true New England tradition.
