Dr. Fogg’s Birthday
This annual event is held the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. It is an old-fashioned family fun day featuring pony rides, horse-and-buggy rides, antique bicycles, maypole, homemade ice cream, old-time children’s games such as three-legged race and egg toss, decorated bike, trike and scooter parade, lots of good food, and free birthday cake and lemonade for all. The Fogg Homestead is also open for tours, and we always have musical entertainment as well.
Dr. Fogg’s Birthday is held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This event is usually held on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend each year.
Murder Mystery Dinner
We introduced this event in 2012 and it was so popular, we are bringing it back again for 2013!
Join us for an evening of mysterious happenings, murder, musical interludes and madcap comedy as we once again welcome Get-a-Clue Productions. Our Murder Mystery Dinner will be held at the Regatta Room on Route 236 in Eliot on Saturday evening, November 9th. Additional details, and ticket buying information, will be posted in the coming months. The event includes dinner and the show.
Mark your calendars: Murder Mystery Dinner, Saturday, November 9, 2013.
This annual event quickly sells out, so get your tickets early! * Held the afternoon of the first Sunday in December at the Fogg Homestead, the Victorian Tea offers elegant sandwiches, delectable desserts, scones and cream, wonderful tea, and music, all in a beautifully decorated historic home.
Additional details and ticket buying information to be posted in the coming months.
* Due to popular demand, we are hoping to offer extra seatings or an extra date for 2013. Watch this website, our newsletter, and postings at the library to learn more.
