The Milford Fair, re-established after the Second World War, is a real expression of ‘rural roots’, notes Charlie Vincent, a member of its board.
“There’s nothing fancy about it. We work hard at keeping it old-fashioned, while adding a few new things every year.”
The fair theme this year is a salute to the history of the fair as a foundation for its future.
