Rather than packing in and heading home, our suggestion is to pitch a tent at the festival. Spend a night under the stars at The Fields of New Market Campground and be one of the first in line for the next day’s activities at the fair. Back in the early days of the campground, it was not the most glamorous affair; though, now armed with...
