Revolutionary Times Market and Fair on Nov. 18 Offers Colonial-themed Experience

October 31, 2023

As part of the upcoming America250 celebration in 2026, the Issaqueena Chapter, NSDAR will hold a Revolutionary Times Market and Fair on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will transform the Uptown Market of Greenwood from a fruit and vegetable farmer’s market into a Colonial-themed experience that gives visitors the unique opportunity to step back in time and gain a deeper understanding of our heritage.

​The Revolutionary Times Market and Fair will offer activities for children, engaging storytellers, talented musicians and demonstrations by artisans and craftsmen.

Historical enthusiasts re-enacting early American life will stroll throughout the market, and visitors will have the opportunity to purchase unique gifts for their holidays.

Among the special highlights:

Fifer Mary Norris, of Aiken, who had Revolutionary War ancestors, will present music during the event.
Blacksmith Brandon R. Dillard will be demonstrating items made from metal that are authentic to the Colonial era.
A special interactive area for children will include a variety of games and activities, including quill writing and tin punching, sachet making and the chance to make a tricorn hat. Children also can play Tic Tac Toe and checkers, games played by children in Colonial times, on special boards donated by Larry and Debra Smith, of Cross Hill, who also have created special photo frame props for the market.
The exhibit, “The American Revolutionary War in South Carolina,” is just a block from the Market at The Museum in Uptown Greenwood. It is a brief stroll to experience this complimentary exhibit, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
