The 103rd Annual Durham Fair
September 21–24, 2023
In 1916, the Durham Fair began a tradition that continues today during the last full weekend in September when the fairgrounds come alive and magically transform into Connecticut’s largest agricultural fair. Come visit the Durham Fair, and you’ll see what a real fair is all about—with live entertainment on four stages, thrilling motorized events, rides and games on the Midway, and first-class animal competitions.
Explore numerous exhibit halls, a discovery center, and a farm museum, showcasing a trove of crafts, exhibits. Indulge in delicious and fun food that will leave you saying “yum!” The Durham Fair is easy to reach yet hard to leave, and we know you will have a great time!
The Durham Fair is owned and operated by the Durham Agricultural Fair Association, Inc., and it’s a private, not-for-profit corporation. As one of the largest fairs in North America, we take pride in being managed entirely by unpaid volunteers.
