There are over 70 vendors in over 30 categories including massage therapy, backyard chickens (Billerica’s new law to allow people to have chickens), Masons CHIPS program, pilates, travel, senior services, art therapy, hypnosis, water, dance, kung fu, bellydancing, Mary Kay, blood pressure & glucose screening, the School Lunch FAT Vest & more.

And of course, no fair would be complete without facepainting for the kids, free raffles at a number of the tables, giveaways by several vendors including the Billerica Board of Health, Billerica Water Department and others.

The event completely takes over the Elks Hall located on Webb Brook Road from 10am to 2pm filling the main hall, the smaller hall, and hallways throughout the building. Don’t miss anything. There is even a food concession being run by Sunshine Gals (a local nonprofit recently formed to provide a hot meal to those in need on a monthly basis).
