DOVER-FOXCROFT — Every region of the world has something unique that develops and blossoms over time, something that makes them special. Our region of Maine is overflowing with that special something. We are maple tree tappers, fiddlehead fryers, cider pressers, river floaters, and fearless snow travelers, sowing our shared seasonal practices, skills, and lore.

The Commons at Central Hall would like to honor this body of knowledge that is passed down among members of our culture, and share a space that welcomes and celebrates everyone. This year, our first year after a long restoration, we will be hosting an annual Fall Folk Festival. Please join us this Saturday, Nov. 3 from 2-7 p.m. as we fill the building with educational demonstrations, vendors, live music, and tasty treats. We will be gathering about 20 artisans who will share knowledge, demonstrate skills, and sell creations. Demonstrations will include, looming, spinning, basket weaving, ornament making, tai chi, storytelling, kombucha making, and painting. Vendors will be selling items such as soaps, salves, knitted frisbees, sweaters, mittens, maple products, wax tarts, jewelry, wreaths, pie, and more.

The entry fee will be per person or per family. Each person that comes through will be automatically eligible to win one of two door prizes — a gift basket and a quilt. We will also be kicking off our Toyota Celica car raffle. The Toyota will be available to view in front of The Commons, and tickets will be $35/one ticket or $100/three tickets. Free festival entry will be granted with the purchase of a car raffle ticket. The drawing for the Celica will be held on Winter Solstice.

Please join us as at 152 East Main Street as we enter the holiday season together, and celebrate our community. For further information call, please 343-3018, email or visit the website at and on Facebook
