Massachusetts Agricultural Fairs / County Fairs

Picture of the Sign fof the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural FairMassachusetts is home to “The Big E” – the Eastern States Exposition is the de facto State Fair for the entire six-state New England Region. Each of the states has a significant presence at the Big-E which has been taking place annually in September since 1917.

While the Big-E has been around for a while, over half of Massachusetts agricultural and county fairs hail all the back to the 1800s. The oldest are the Three County Fair (1818), the Topsfield Fair (1818), and the Barnstable County Fair (1845).

Fair season in Massachusetts starts in June, peaks in the summer during August and early September, and runs through the end of September or into the very beginning of October.
