Annual Westfield Fair
August 19 - August 21
The Westfield Fair features agricultural and livestock exhibits, amusement rides, games, entertainment, and more. The three-day event opens its gates on Friday at 5 p.m. Similar to most New England fairs, the Westfield Fair showcases the agricultural efforts of today’s farmers by hosting livestock shows and an exhibit hall filled with flowers, vegetables, handmade items and more.
There will be an antique tractor pull, the annual Miss Westfield Pageant, dairy and beef shows, a craft barn and farm museum, oxen show, sheep shows, ox draw, demo derby, truck pulls, kid’s pedal tractor pull, balloon sculpture, goat show, horse draw, petting zoo, and mud bog on Sunday.
The annual auction begins 6 p.m. on Sunday and benefits the fair. Items that are auctioned are those that people don’t take home from various hall exhibits, including baked goods, vegetables, flowers, corn stalks for decorating and bales of hay. “There is something different every year,” said Johnson, who has been fair president for eight years. “It’s a lot of fun.”
This year’s Westfield Fair will take place Friday, 5 to 10 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
On the fairgrounds on 137 Russellville Road in Westfield. Tickets are $8, $6 for seniors, and free to children under 12 with a paid adult admission. Parking is $2.
