The Big E!!
September 16 - October 1
The Big E returns Sept. 15 through Oct. 1, 2023.
Music fans will enjoy top-name concerts at The Big E Arena, sponsored by Truly Hard Seltzer. Guests will be able to visit the Avenue of States, Storrowton Village Museum, shop, eat iconic fair foods, watch the new Big Parade, ride the rides and much more.
SHOP ‘TIL YOU DROP
Only at The Big E can you go home with a set of steak knives, a hot tub, a sweater made from Alpaca fiber and maybe even a tractor. With everything you could ever want all in one place, it’s better than any mall in the world!
GET YOUR “AG” ON!
Agriculture is one of Eastern States Exposition’s oldest traditions and Farm-A-Rama is the heart of agriculture during The Big E. Visit the chick hatchery, pet a goat, learn about the secret life of bees and all things farm in the Stroh Building.
