Washington County Fair

Lemonade, livestock shows, midway games, and more! 

Our annual event offers the full Washington County experience. With live entertainment, 4-H displays, foods you can only find at the fair, and the latest and greatest rides, it’s no wonder more than 100,000 folks visit the fair every year. Make summer memories with the whole family at the Washington County Fair.

A tribute to our county’s legacy.

For more than a century, the Washington County Fair has been an important part of our area and the surrounding communities. Dating back to the 1920s, the New York’s Washington County Fair has changed along with our world, but its roots remain. While today’s entertainment includes tractor pull competitions and demolition derbies, it’s still all about our people, the county’s rural character, and our great agricultural traditions.
