18th Century Market Faire & Rendezvous


Jacobsburg Historical Society’s annual Market Faire & Rendezvous is traditionally held during the last full weekend of October on the grounds of the Boulton Historic Site, just outside of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The 2021 event will be open to the public on Saturday, October 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday, October 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Parking is available in the pasture behind the John Joseph Henry House at 402 Henry Road, just off the Belfast Exit on Route 33. 

The Market Faire & Rendezvous is family-friendly with a living history encampment representing many periods of American history, including the Pre-Colonial, Colonial, and Fur Trade Eras. Demonstrations and events include primitive archery, blacksmithing, black powder demos, children’s games, a Market Faire of 18th and 19th century traders, and individual blanket traders.

Bear Honey Farms, Mad Js BBQ, and the Colony Meadery will be on site both days!
