Old Sloop Fair Rummage Sale

Old Sloop Fair Rummage Sale

Rockport’s beloved Old Sloop Fair will begin with the Rummage Sale.  The Rummage Sale offers gently-used women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, bed linens, luggage, handbags, and much more. There is always a great selection!

The Old Sloop Fair has long been a popular Rockport summer attraction.  It originated in 1957 under the guidance of Rev. Ed Nutting.  In the early years of the fair, School Street was closed to traffic, festive lighting was erected, and a live auction was held in the street.  Long-time Rockport residents may remember auctioneers Frank Gray and Karl Johnson, “grab lady” Peg Emerson, the roast turkey dinners, and the “Old Sloop” sailor caps worn by the volunteers.
