It's Fair time! The 57th Annual Hillsborough County Agricultural Fair will be held September 5th - 7th at the Youth Center on Route 13 in New Boston, NH.
The fair begins Friday at noon with the stock farm tractor pull and horse log skidding. The amusement rides and games brought to you again this year by Amyland Amusements will open at 2pm. Look for special offers in the local area stores. This is a great time for people with little ones to get a quick run of the fair and not feel so overwhelmed by the crowd. Friday night will begin with the raising of the flag by the Alvirne High School JROTC color guard. We have Brett, an amazing chain saw sculptor back again this year that you can watch birds and animals just jump out and come alive from a wooden log. Come “Learn to be a Farmer” with a series of talks related to backyard farming. We are incredibly excited to have the NH Falconry School showing off their majestic birds again this year. They will be doing flight demos at 11am and 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday is filled with entertainment, exhibits and animal classes that show the hard work of people all over the county. The main stage entertainment will include The Tammy Lynn Myles High Band, Bow Junction and Heel n' Toe Square Dancing. The evening's entertainment will be the Cold Comfort Band. Comprised of 6 musicians, 2 guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and two lead singers. Get there early for the best seats. The Cowboy Mounted Shooters take center arena in the evening and The BIG RIG Truck Pull is also Saturday night. Its pretty crazy to watch semis and big 10 wheel trucks pull!
There will be oxen pulling on Saturday and horse pulling on Sunday. Our famous weekend long horseshoe pitching contest continues up on the hill. This event is FREE for anyone to enter and winners receive a plaque for first and second in boy and girl divisions! Also FREE are pie eating contests open to all fairgoers. There are quilts to be raffled and bake sales to eat your way through. Along with fair food, fair rides and fair games, there will be goats, sheep, rabbits, cows, pigs and poultry. We wind down the weekend with the The Granite State Disc Dog Competition in the main arena. They will be holding a competition all day with over 20 dogs competing in various trials.They are new to our fair and should be a great competition to watch. This dogs are amazing! We also feature the 4-H Sheep Olympics on Sunday afternoon - how can you miss that?
Sunday's main stage entertainment consists of Dan Morgan trio at noon and then he’ll be joined by Johnnie Bubar at 2pm. As always we will have Mo the Clown sitting down by the main stage and he can make any balloon animal your child can dream up!
As always, we feature on Sunday the crowd pleasing Truck Pull. We have Midway rides for young and young at heart and games to test your skill and strength. Area vendors will be on the grounds to sell you anything you may want.
