After careful consideration, the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 179th Saratoga County Fair. Since 1841 we have only canceled the Fair once, during the Civil War. The Fair will resume as scheduled July 20-25, 2021.
An Exceptional Fair
The Saratoga County Fair combines new entertainment, specialty food and beverage, competitions, and spectacular rides for the ultimate fair experience. More than 850 exhibitors will enter over 6,500 exhibits in competitive categories from antiques to vegetables, and there will be Midway rides, special entertainment acts, and more - the fair offers something for all ages and interests!
You could see blue-ribbon livestock, savor special fair foods like a deep-fried Twinkie, learn about home crafts such as quilting and spinning, and ride thrilling attractions.
