Guilford Day has been an annual event for many years and plans are underway for 2017. Its theme, "Artfully Yours," showcases a variety of art forms including dance, art, storytelling, music, photography, crafts, vendors, garage sales, food and theater for all ages. The date this year is July 22nd and takes place along Main Street (route 35) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the hamlet of Guilford.
2016 was a very successful year for Guilford Community Day. Plans are underway for popular attractions to return again this year include the horse-and-buggy ride, painting class, Oxford Community Band, on-the-street artist, "Taken in Guilford" photography contest, Guilford Historical Society's What's It, palm reading,jewelry making, actors portraying historical Guilford figures, Jericho Arts Council's elementary art show, BG teachers' association book giveaway, balloon artist, stamp cancellation, and stuff-a-bus school supply collection. There is something for everyone and all ages.
There are new and exciting attractions for 2017: line dancing with instruction; Jim Dorn, folk singer; a walking-tour brochure; narrated horse-drawn trolley; animals from the Delaware Valley Humane Society; stories from the town historian's new book, River Hamlets; a photography workshop; yoga class; and a kids' art workshop.
The Guilford Day has been successful due to the dedication of the committee and volunteers who assist with planning and on the day of the event. We seek to increase involvement of area businesses with representation on the committee, as well as bring new people from the area to serve as event day volunteers and/or committee members.
It takes many hands to plan, set up, and oversee this annual event and your assistance is desperately needed. Please call Kathy at 607-316-2722 and let her know how you can help keep this annual event going strong. 2017-Guilford-Photography-Contest art-class-article-2017 photo-contest-article-2017
