REGION – Community members will have the opportunity to see dozens of fife and drum corps from across the Northeast gather Saturday, Sept. 25, for the 50th Sudbury Ancient Fyfe and Drum Muster at the Wayside Inn. 

The musicians will be part of a day featuring a colonial encampment, militia and crafts demonstrations, and contradancing. 

Organizers expect dozens of colonial and craft vendors augmenting the 25 fife and drum corps from across New England and New York. 

The fair opens at 10:00 a.m.

A Grand Parade of fifes and drums will begin promptly at noon to be followed by a performance by each of the corps attending. 

“The muster is a celebration rather than a competition: The corps are appearing by invitation and attend to share their music and friendship,” read a press release.

Admission is $3 cash for the general public at the gate.
