Celebrating 171 years!

The Essex County Fair is a small agricultural fair with animal shows of many varieties for everyone to enjoy.

One admission price includes carnival rides, animal shows, face painting, exhibits and parking. Only $10 per person for all-day fun.

This fair is one of the few fairs that still has Standardbred harness racing. They have lots of motor sports; some for all ages. A figure 8 race is a new contest this year.

Plan on local food, crafts, demonstrations, vendors, and maple sugar products on the midway and in the historic Floral Hall. See a variety of animals throughout the grounds and enjoy carnival rides, food, and games.  

The popular demolition derby will take place on August 18.
