The 56th Annual Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair will be held from Friday September 6th through Sunday the 8th. This is a true county aggie fair, but there are many programs that will inform and entertain the many townies in Hillsborough County too.
Some highlights of the Fair are The Giant Pumpkin Weigh-in on Friday, square dancing on Saturday, and a program featuring horticulturist Margaret Hagen, well-known from her appearances on WMUR Channel 9, on Sunday.
There will be many classes for 4-Hers and farmers; cooking, quilting, wood carving, fruit, vegetable, and photography contests; cow, sheep, rabbit, dog, and goat shows; horse log skidding; and horse, oxen, lawn tractor, and truck pulls. This year there will also be demonstrations by the New Hampshire School of Falconry.
Some of the more popular competitions include the pie eating, horseshoe throwing, and pumpkin weighing contests. Other entertainment ranges from midway amusement rides and Mo the Clown to the Cowboy Mounted Shooters and many musical groups, including the Tammy Lynn Myles High Band and the Barn Fire Band.
The Hillsborough County Fair will be at 15 Hill Dale Lane, off of State Route 13, in New Boston. Hours: Friday Noon to 6; Saturday 9AM to 7PM; Sunday 9AM to 6PM. General admission: $ 10/day; children 6-12, seniors 65+, active military and veterans: $ 5/day. For more details and a schedule of the Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair click here.
