Three County Fair

August 30 - September 2

three county fair featured

One of the longest consecutive running agricultural fairs in the country – which remains true to its original constitution “to promote agriculture, agricultural education, and agricultural science in the Commonwealth.” The Fair opens for four days over Labor Day weekend beginning Friday at 4 p.m.

The Fair takes place annually over Labor Day Weekend featuring Livestock and Agricultural Contests & Exhibits, Top Musical Entertainment, Farm Museum, Delicious Food Vendors, Demolition Derbies, Exciting Midway with Rides & Games for All Ages!

Farmers come to share their farming techniques. Families come to view the very best in agricultural products and livestock, and to experience programs and events that they will not experience anywhere except at the fair.

There’s always something new at the 3 County Fair, and this year it’s the Aussie Kingdom, bringing a little bit of “down under” from Australia to New England. School bus demolition derbies on Saturday night and Monday afternoon. Each school bus is sponsored by a local school or non-profit organization with cash prizes awarded to the top three finishers and best decorated school bus. Other demolition and racing events feature the compact 4 and 6 cylinder demo derby, demo cross, full size 6 and 8 cylinder demo derby, and pro modified compact derby.

Admission to the 3 County Fair is $12 for adults, $10 for ages 65 and older, and free to children age 11 and under. Sunday is also Military Appreciation Day, sponsored by Veterans Affairs New England, when all veterans and active military receive free admission. Grandstand events are $5 per person and parking at the fair is $5. Fairgoers can purchase an all-day-ride wristband for the midway each day for $25.
