Aden Heritage & Country Fair
Sunday 24th September 2017
Treat the whole family to an enjoyable day out at the Aden Heritage & Country Fair. The fair takes place on Sunday 24th September, between 11am to 4pm, in the beautiful surroundings of Aden Country Park in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire.
The event has been designed to celebrate the local culture and farming traditions unique to Aberdeenshire, illustrating what life was like for country people in the past and how it has shaped Aberdeenshire’s countryside today.
The Heritage & Country Fair has been designed to tie in with the hugely popular Vintage Tractor Working Day event which takes place in the Hareshowe Farm fields. The fair aspects will be held in the Aden courtyard area and will offer a range of locally made craft and farmer's market stalls, an exhibition of the Morrison collection of rural photographs, vintage and classic cars and traditional skills like oat cake and butter making in the Farming museum and Hareshowe. Bloontoon Picaroons will be performing a piece of comic street theatre inspired by stories of buccaneers. Expect juggling comedy and acrobatics!
There will also be a chance to relax with a cuppa or lunch at the Café at Aden, along with a browse in the Aden Craft & Gift Shop which offers a unique selection of locally made arts and crafts, including cards, bags, scarfs, and jewellery as well as a range of books, music, souvenirs, and children's toys, all at fair prices.
So why not come along to Aden Country Park for an enjoyable day out for the whole family in the heart of Buchan, a good time is guaranteed.
