The tree-lined streets in the center of Fairhaven come alive every year in late June. That's the location of the Fairhaven Homecoming Day Fair, coming up June 29, from 10 am to 4 pm. Now in its 43rd year, Fairhaven Homecoming Day offers up tasty food, free entertainment, and dozens of crafters and artisans displaying their creations for sale. Admission is free. Thousands attend the event each year and look forward to meeting old friends! Homecoming Fair Chair Barbara Acksen chats with Jim Phillips this week about the history of the fair, and what's available in the 2019 edition.
