In response to community concerns over the loss of Mater Fest, Canton Moose Lodge 515 will hold the first annual Mater Fair from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at 12 Penland St., Canton.

The event will include a car show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a Mater Recipe Contest and vendors selling handmade and homegrown items. There will also be music, dancing, magicians, food, family fun and Canton Moose Lodge’s Famous Mater Pies.

Proceeds raised during Mater Fair will go to help make Christmas better for local children and Moose charities Moose Heart and Moose Haven.

The Loyal Order of the Moose is a nonprofit organization and fraternity.
