Welcome to The Guilford Fair, Connecticut’s 2nd oldest agricultural fair.
Established in 1859, the Fair is held each year during the third full weekend in September, on the Fairgrounds in historic Guilford, Conn.

The 2021 Guilford Fair is dedicated to our local farmers – integral players on the front line and truly essential workers. Read more…

Thank you for your support of our 2020 COVID Operating Deficit Recovery Campaign. You carried us through a tough year! We have exceeded our $50,000 goal!

As we continue to prepare for the 2021 Fair, we have several thousand dollars in new and yet-to-be-determined expenses to comply with all rapidly-changing local, state and federal rules and requirements.  We must fold those into our budget and are just now tiptoeing through these operating challenges.  Fingers crossed that few pivots will be required.  Thanks for your support and concern!
