The Yankee Doodle Fair opens this year on Thursday, June 12, and continues through the weekend. The fair takes place each year on Father's Day weekend at the Westport Woman's Club, 44 Imperial Ave.
The fair will feature carnival rides and games. The club's Gourmet Group will conduct a bake sale and sell the "Yankee Doodle Fair Cookbook," and a raffle will offer a $1,000 grand prize and $500 second prize. There will also be a food court with a variety of offerings.
"The fair is our largest fundraiser. Its proceeds support our grants to community service agencies, need-based scholarships for Staples students and the much-needed food closet for the town of Westport," said Mary Lee Clayton, club president.
Fair hours are 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 1 to 10 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Unlimited ride wristbands will be available every day for $25. Individual tickets are $1.25. For details, visit www.westportwomansclub.org or call 203 227-4240.
