Reasons for trip

Although it was a blustery and wet weekend, I ventured out about an hour north west of London, Ontario to the 36th annual “Lambton Fall Colour and Craft Festival”: This fair is a bit different than most as it is held in and around Lambton Heritage Museum (which is located just south of Grand Bend) and the Legacy Recreation Centre in Thedford (which is a few minutes further south). A $5 entry fee will get you into both locations along with a map to show you how to travel between them. In total there were over 90 vendors.

I started at the museum. There is ample parking at both locations. With the stalls being set up inside the museum, you also get to see some of the artifacts on display. No question the focus is on the arts and crafts for sale, however you could still experience the museum as well as the sale even though some areas were blocked off. It wasn’t only the main building involved either. The sale extended to stalls outside behind the museum and in some of the outer barns. It was nice to walk outside looking at the vendor’s wares with wood smoke in the air and crunching leaves under foot. There were all manner of arts and crafts for sale including items specifically for Halloween and Christmas.

If you want to take a break from shopping, you might be able to stop and watch an ice hockey game in Thedford. There was one in play when I was at the recreation centre. The Legacy Recreation Centre is located at 16 Allen St, Thedford, ON N0M 2N0.

The fair was on from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm both days.
