Questions/Answers, Comments, Suggestions

Question from Bill: Hi, do you have electric cart rental? I have arthritis and I'm not sure I can walk the length of the fair grounds.

Answer: We have handicap parking so you wouldn't have to walk too far. Will that help?

Comment from Bill: Yes Thanks. I saw that on the map. I enjoyed the fair so much last year I wanted to go again. Your fair reminds me of the 4H / county fairs I attended in Indiana.

The Bridgewater Country Fair is a long standing tradition, preserving the character of the country fairs of yesterday, when farmers and other country folk congregated to compete with their prized livestock, produce, and arts and crafts. It was also, and still is a place where one can compare the latest farm and lawn equipment and haggle on the price of a new vehicle.

Besides the displays, there is a fantastic midway, featuring rides provided by Tufano Amusements, Inc., as well as great food tents all through the fairgrounds featuring our famous roast beef sandwiches, chicken breasts, or if you are in the mood for a hotdog, well, we have them as well.

Kick off the weekend with the Annual Bridgewater Fair Parade - opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 and the parade starts at 6:45 Friday evening. The parade features area Volunteer Fire Companies from Connecticut and New York, carrying their colors and displaying their newest trucks as well as antique fire equipment. Marching bands, color guard, and many other attractions ring in the fair as they make their way down historic Main Street in Bridgewater. Come early for a good spot.
