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.

Besides the contests, we have music entertainment, shows, and rides.   And, as always, there is a large variety of great food tents throughout the fairgrounds from hotdogs to chocolate covered bacon. And of course, our famous roast beef sandwiches, chicken breasts, and corn are always available.

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 quaint Main Street in Bridgewater. Come early for a good spot.
