On Friday, August 16th, The Lost Colony and their neighbors at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site invite everyone from field and town to celebrate Virginia Dare’s birthday. Events commemorating the birth of the first English child born in the New World will be held at The Lost Colony, The Elizabethan Gardens and the National Park Service Visitors Center.
The Lost Colony is hosting Virginia Dare Faire and this year’s event promises to be “over-the-top.” An exciting morning full of mirth and merriment has been planned and includes a bounce house, Indian invasions, jugglers, games of chance, stilt walkers, dunk tank, field games, giant puppets, red soldier patrol, face painting, a huge rock climbing wall and much, much, more.
In addition to all of the games and activities, revelers will be treated to popcorn, snow cones and a Candy Shoppe. The Faire will be held on the lawn next to The Lost Colony administrative offices. Festivities begin at 10:00 am and end with cake and ice cream at the front gates of The Elizabethan Gardens at 1:00 pm.
The celebration continues that evening with a special performance of The Lost Colony featuring local infants in the role of Virginia Dare!
