The first festival revolved around a musical production entitled, “Milford Memories.” It told the story of Milford’s founding fathers, based on the book, "Ten Minutes Ahead of the Rest of the World." The play was written by Jamie Mason, and Michael McGuire wrote the score. The play was performed under a tent in Central Park that year and again in 1993.
Since the very beginning, Milford Memories included an art fair. Today the art fair has grown into a national known juried event.
