The 5th Annual French Fair and Fleamarket is upon us!

We want artists for Art on the Fence.  If you have any framed or stretched pieces that would be suitable to put up along the park railings and sell at no commission please come join us, at our 5th annual French Fair in Seton Hill on October 11th from 12-5 p.m. Please send an e-mail to to book space. The Fair takes place in our Saint Mary’s Park.

Seton Hill (just West of Mount Vernon) is hosting its fun, funky and free French style event to celebrate the neighborhood as Baltimore’s old French Quarter.   We have a variety of activities that will attract a diverse audience of locals and people from across Maryland; it should be a distinctive and memorable event so invite your friends and family.

We kick off at 12 p.m. with DJ Steve Windows.  There will be several live performances, including the Hot Club of Baltimore play jazz at 1 pm, followed by Kevin McWha Steele at 3 pm.  Victoria Vox finishes the music beginning at 4 pm.  In between these acts we have hula hooping on the central green, our signature French maid races, Petanque in the park, a flea and craft market and a Kids corner that will include building a 6 foot and mini Eiffel towers, Toddler Tour de France, a mini Grand Prix, face painting, sack races and other fun stuff.

During the fair, visitors will also be able to tour the Historic St. Mary’s Chapel and visitor center and attend a lecture there at 2 p.m. by Professor Richard Guy Wilson, speaking on Maximilian Godefroy & St. Mary’s Chapel: The Invention of the Gothic Revival for America.

We look forward to seeing you!
