Large agricultural fair which hasn't entirely turned into a carnival like the Big-E. Pretty much the same year-to-year, but a nice way to spend 3 hours, see some animals and old machines, and eat greasy food balanced on your knees.

Use the official parking lots with bus service to the fair. So much more convenient and less stressful, even with kids and (small) strollers!

From Our Editors

When the first Durham Fair was held in 1916, about 2,000 people from the town and other surrounding communities visited the fairgrounds. Last year, visitors from all over the region attended the Durham Fair, which has been voted Best Fair by Connecticut Magazine for its combination of family activities, mouthwatering food, good music, and lack of robot overlords.

This year, the agricultural fair features more than 1,000 animals and more than 10,000 exhibits, plus carnival rides and appearances by CMA Award–winner Martina McBride. It also entertains visitors with everything from a demolition derby to a comedic dog show to a wine festival.

Though the fair has grown substantially since its early days, it is still run entirely by volunteers. Furthermore, it gives a portion of its profits back to the community via scholarships and the support of numerous local projects and events.
