On the Common, Newport’s Apple Pie Craft Fair Aug. 22

Newport’s traditional Apple Pie Craft Fair on the Newport Town Common is coming up on Saturday, August 22. Under the direction of the Kate Niboli, the new director of the Library Arts Center, the Fair Committee has lined up crafts that will ring the common. And, yes, visitors will enjoy the annual apple pie contest and sale, and there’ll be a chicken barbecue put on by the Newport Fire Department. This year’s plans also include an apple café, music, a day-long raffle and a display of children’s art work. Organizers will be providing fair-goers more information about the history and workings of the Library Arts Center, as well. Fair hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I would like to see the Apple Pie Craft Fair become even more important to our town and area, and, as a major Library Arts Center fundraiser, I would like to have people walk away with a deeper understanding of what we’re all about. – LAC Director Kate Niboli
