Old Sloop Fair
The Old Sloop Fair, one of the oldest and largest church fairs on Boston's north shore, continues July 19 and 20 with antiques, vintage items, collectibles, kitchen and household items, art, jewelry, hand-knits, and a snack bar. The First Congregational Church was organized in 1755. The sanctuary building was constructed in 1804 as the Sandy Bay meetinghouse. The tall steeple and white façade close to the shoreline resembled a ship's sail when seen from the sea, inspiring the local fishermen to call it "The Old Sloop."
