Every year during the Fair, I make sure to carve out time from my duties as General Manager so my wife and I can visit the exhibits together. The impressive displays in each building are a true testament to how talented and amazing New England residents are and my family enjoys seeing the variety of exhibitors that the Fair welcomes. From quilters to farmers, florists to woodworkers, and beekeepers to 4Hers, we truly have a category for all.
In recent years, the Fair has converted our printed Exhibitor's Handbook to be available entirely online, and in 2013, we began accepting entries online, too! This system has made it both faster and easier for our exhibitors to enter and we are excited to combine this 21st-century technology with our classic, traditional exhibits.
To get started, check out our step-by-step Online Handbook Instructions by clicking here. If you have any questions, or need help completing your entry forms, please do not hesitate to contact our office by calling 978-887-5000. We are available from 9AM to 4PM, Monday - Friday and are more than happy to help!
We look forward to welcoming our exhibitors, both new and returning, to the Fair and can't wait to see what you all have in store for us this year!
