Northampton, Three County Fair

August 30 - September 2

Join us for the Three County Fair, Our 207th Consecutive Fair! 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 features 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.

General admission is $15 for ages 12 and older. There will be discounts available to seniors and veterans.

In addition, the fair will offer Veterans Appreciation Day on Sept. 4 with free admission to all veterans courtesy of Central Hampshire Veterans’ Services. The day is highlighted with a performance by Nashville recording artists and Massachusetts natives, Martin & Kelly.
