Event Navigation

On Saturday, April 15 from 9 – 4 p.m., The Beaufort Historic Site will kick off the spring season with the annual Publick Day event on the grounds at 130 Turner Street. The Site will transform into an open-air marketplace, welcoming visitors to explore the vast array of goods and items for sale from various vendors.

“Publick Times” dates back to the Colonial period and is fashioned after Williamsburg of the 1700s when the General Court was in session. “Publick Times” gave visitors an opportunity to come to town to see and be seen, conduct court business, shop, gossip, dine and dance.  Guests who attend Publick Day can expect to find a variety of vendors selling antiques, vintage finds, collectibles, crafts and more.

Vendor space is available.  Applications are being accepted to rent a 10’ x 10’ space for $35 if you are a BHA member and $50 for non-members. Space is first-come, first served, and the event is held rain or shine. Spaces are non-refundable. Vendors must supply their own tables and tent if needed. For more information, download the application below, visit the Old Beaufort Shop at 130 Turner Street, or email pr@beauforthistoricsite.org.
