The Tunbridge World’s Fair has run continuously since 1867 except in 1918 due to the great flu epidemic and during World War II. This year the Fair will be held September 15 to 18, Thurs. & Fri. from 8 am – 9 pm, Sat. 8 am – 10 pm and Sun. 11 am – 6 pm. As a family venue this couldn’t be better. It is for all ages and interest located in a charming valley. The Fair is a blend of active livestock shows, beautiful farm animals, competitive harvest and craft exhibits, motorized pulling, free entertainment, an expanded midway and a superb Antique Museum with live enactors. Together the fairgrounds and the village of Tunbridge form a designated Historic District. The Tunbridge World’s Fair is a Top Ten 2011 Fall Event. Cost: Thurs. $8, Fri. $10, Sat $12, Sun $10. There is no better place to sample a candied apple, share fried dough and watch the horse pulling contests. Look in awe at what our young 4 H boys and girls grow in their gardens – envy their green thumbs. Stay at Breakfast on the Connecticut and enjoy, at least once in your life a true American treasure, a country fair.
