I hate to see summer go but, I love to see the Columbia County Fair arrive. For me it is the start of Fall. The Fair runs August 31 to September 5. Admission includes parking and all entertainment, Kids 12 and under are always admitted free, and ride discounts everyday. The Fair is located on Route 66 in Chatham NY.
Wednesday at 6:30 in the Grandstands is the Demolition Derby
Thursday at 9:00 AM is the 4-H horse show at the horse show ring.
Friday starting at 9:00am is the antique tractor pull, 6:30 PM is the 75th annual school queen show, and at 8:00pm is the 1964 tribute to the Beatles
Saturday start the day with the Fire Fighters Parade at 11:00am and watch the Monster tractor pull between 4-9PM
Monday watch the hit singers GLORANA in the Grandstand. One concert is at 3pm the other is at 8pm.
Monday enjoy the Painted pony championship rodeo from 4 to 8pm.
While all this is going on there are daily shows with 4-H, Bands, art displays, rug hooking and comedy and magic shows. Also there is the Morton A. Ginsberg Bounty Cooking Contest at 3:30 on Monday.
Hope to see you there. You can stay home and watch the leaves turn or be part of the fun in Columbia County.
