A Small-Town Fair That’s Big on Fun
The Harford Fair welcomes about 65,000 visitors each year on the third full week of August. Located just outside of New Milford, the town pulls out all the stops with live entertainment, rides, games, food, and more. This fair has been a beloved summer tradition since 1858.
The Main Arena hosts the fair’s iconic events like the truck and tractor pulls, a rodeo, horse pulls, a woodsman’s contest, a demolition derby, and country concerts. You can also catch local music, family shows, and demonstrations all throughout the week.
It just wouldn’t be the fair without classic family fun. Stop by the midway for the thrill of the rides and carnival games. Browse through the craft vendors, meet the animals, and dig in to your favorite fair foods.
