2017 Durham Fair

 The largest agricultural fair in Connecticut is the Durham Fair, and the 2017 Durham Fair will be going on all weekend.  As always rain or shine the Durham Fair draws a large crowd.  Most years it tends to be a 50/50 chance of rain, and this year the chance of no rain does not look to good with hurricane Jose making his way up the east coast.

Every year the Durham Fair is packed with activities and entertainment for the whole family, such as the dog show in the picture to the right.   There will also be excellent musical performers like the Brothers Osborne on Friday night, and Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Saturday night.

As always the fair will have rides, exhibits, animal pulls, and food that you only get at Fairs, liked the chocolate covered bacon that I am munching on below.

The Durham Fair was started in 1916, and is now the largest agricultural fair in Connecticut.  Through the years the Durham Fair has contributed in many ways to the Durham community, such as:

  • Awarded over $500,000 in academic scholarships since 1966?
  • Made charitable donations totaling over $50,000 since 1996?
  • Made repairs to the Durham Library and major contributions to the library building projects?
  • Purchased the Durham Fire Company's first Jaws of Life?

Below are some pictures from past years, as you will see the rain does not keep people away.

Little bit of rain wouldn't keep me away from teh chocolate covered bacon, either!  Sounds like a lot of fun, George, hope you'll get to keep dry when attending this year's fair.

Hi George

Sounds like there are lots of opportunities for fun and good food, including chocolate covered bacon, in Durham this weekend! I like bacon, and I LOVE chocolate, but that would be an entirely new experience.Those are great photos!

Have fun!

The Durham Fair looks like a lot of fun, George.  And, if I were closer I would go just for the chocolate covered bacon.
