The Wood Street Fair in Burlington

Burlington, New Jersey will again fête its historic district with the return of the 46th annual Wood Street Fair.

More than 175 crafters, artists and antique vendors will set up on Wood St. and along the riverfront, selling jewelry, pottery, quilts, wood work and other handmade wares.

The 339-year old city is proud of its colonial roots and hosts the juried craft fair to help maintain Revell House, which was built in 1685.

Nicknamed the Gingerbread House, it is the oldest existent building in all of Burlington County.

A diary entry by Benjamin Franklin tells that he once dined on ox-cheek (mmmmm…) and purchased gingerbread at a residence believed to be Revell House en route to Philadelphia.

In honor of this, fresh baked gingerbread men and loaves are a staple of the fair.

The Revell House (213 Wood St.) will also be open for free tours during the event, as will the 19th-century Carriage House (23 Smith Ln.), home of the city’s historical society.

Free parking can be found behind shops on High Street.

Please note: pets are NOT welcome.

Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – 213 Wood St., Burlington, N.J.

Please note this event is in the City of Burlington and not Burlington Township.
