The public is invited to enter their needle work, flowers, crafts, hobbies, vegetables, bake goods, canned goods, jams, and jellies. Ribbons and cash prizes are awarded to winning entries. This year’s special contests are “largest tomato by weight” and the largest marigold flower with some stem to prove it’s a marigold, any color. IMPORTANT: Items for the exhibits (to be judged) need to be dropped off THURSDAY evening, September 12th, between 5 and 7 pm. Forms are available by email to save time filling them out Thursday. We are a participating fair for the CT State Apple pie and baking contests, all CT Fair rules must be followed for these contests to go on to state judging this fall.

Our famous hot dogs and hamburgers available with peppers and onions will be available from 11 to 1 p.m. along with other tempting foods.  The bake sale usually runs out of pies by 1 p.m. so get here early to get a homemade pie
