Dock Dogs Perform First Weekend

"Dock Dogs", a competition for dogs to dive the furthest into a specially prepared pool, will be held in the Grandstand. The competition is open to ALL dogs. Owners must pre-register on-line at dockdogs.com.

New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off in the Arena

The Weigh-Off will begin at 4 pm in the arena and pumpkins will start being unloaded at 1 pm. The 2012 Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off held at Topsfield fair was, without a doubt, the most exciting Weigh-Off to date. The world's first one ton pumpkin, grown by New Englander Ron Wallace from Greene, RI, weighed in at a whopping 2009 pounds. Topsfield Fair is home to the first ONE TON pumpkin ever grown in the world. Imagine that!
Call George and Maryann Hoomis of Ipswich (978) 356-0117 for more information.

Military Day Tuesday October 7th

To honor our military, all active members of the military...men and women, are invited to come to the Fair on Tuesday, October 7th to be admitted free with their families. They need only to show their identification at the admission gate to be admitted.

Mrs. Essex County Pageant

The Mrs. Essex County Pageant will be held on Sunday, October 12th in Coolidge Hall. The contestants will demonstrate their cooking abilities by entering a food dish for judging, have private interviews, and present themselves at the Pageant on Sunday. This is not a beauty contest... it is an opportunity for "the women of today" to talk about themselves, their interest in the Fair, and their daily activities. The winner will then go on to be the Official Hostess for the 2015 Topsfield Fair throughout the year. Entry forms are available online or by calling the fair office (978) 887-5000.

Express Parking And Shuttle on Weekends

Tired of waiting in traffic to get to the Fair? Let the Fair do the driving! In an effort to alleviate the frustration of waiting in traffic, there will be off-site parking on both weekends at North Shore Community College and Masconomet Regional High School. The Express Shuttle has a special dedicated traffic-free route to the Fair. The NSCC is located just off Route 95 at exit 50: drive onto Route One South, and the college is located on Ferncroft Road in Danvers. Masconomet High School is just off Route 95 at exit 51. Parking is $5. Free continuously operating shuttles take fairgoers to and from their cars to the fairgrounds at both lots. The Topsfield Fair is also offering entertainment for the kids while you wait! A stress free way to start your day at the Fair!

Sinks and Handwash Stations

While everyone is being urged these days to consistently wash their hands, the fair has several hand washing sinks in the rest rooms and outside areas. Sinks are available outside the Nursing Mothers Lounge and alongside the Adult Changing Tent (located behind the Nursing Mother's Lounge). Hand sanitizer stations are in the buildings on the fairgrounds.

Visit The Cow Of The Day And Pet A Calf!

The fair's popular Cattle Barn continues its "Cow of the Day" program. Fairgoers will be able to see Milking Demonstrations and "Pet a Calf" in that building daily, as posted.
