Public Services

Administration Building

The Topsfield Fair Administration Building is located next to the Main Gate entrance and is open throughout the year and during the duration of the Topsfield Fair.

This is the main office of the Topsfield Fair and Essex Agricultural Society. You can contact the Administration Building at (978) 887-5000.

During the Topsfield Fair, all lost and found items are brought to this building as well.

Public Safety

Fire and Police personnel are on duty at the fairgrounds. Fire personnel are located at the front gate with apparatus. The Topsfield Police are stationed in the Public Safety building adjacent to the front gate.

The Topsfield Fair is committed to a safe, secure, and enjoyable fair. We continue to work cooperatively with the Topsfield Public Safety Departments and the Massachusetts State Police to take appropriate actions relating to the safety and security of all fair attendees and staff. All staff and patrons need to go through security which includes bag checks before entering the Fairgrounds.

First Aid

The First Aid Station is located inside the Main Gate staffed by emergency medical personnel. The nursing staff is backed up by an ambulance service. Ambulances are on site.

If there is an emergency, please notify the nearest Fair personnel (those wearing Topsfield Fair ID) for immediate care. DO NOT CALL 911 – the fair has emergency care on grounds.

Information Booth

The Fair offers three Information Booths – inside the Main Gate, inside River Gate (Lot A), and near the Fair Trade Building. Information personnel are on duty during Fair hours at these booths to assist guests with their needs, questions, comments, concerns or problems. You will find information about daily events, a fair map, and more.

Stroller & Wheelchair Rentals

We have a limited number of strollers, wagons and manual wheelchairs for rent at Gate A/River Gate, which are rented on a first-come, first-served basis – so we recommend arriving early. Guests are welcome to bring their own to use on the mostly paved Fairgrounds.

$20 Wheelchair
$10 Single Stroller
$15 Double Stroller
$15 Radio Flyer Wagons

Souvenir Booths

There are two Souvenir Booths- at the Main Gate entrance and outside of the Fair Trade Building. Purchase official Topsfield Fair merchandise, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, lapel pins and other collectibles.

Sinks and Hand Wash Stations

While everyone is being urged these days to consistently wash their hands, the Topsfield Fair has several hand washing sinks in the restrooms and outside areas.

Sinks are available outside the Nursing Mothers Lounge and alongside the Adult Changing Tent (located behind the Nursing Mothers Lounge). Hand sanitizer stations are in the buildings on the fairgrounds.
