The Connecticut Agricultural Fair was founded in 1967 by the members and Granges of the Connecticut State Grange. Their mission was to promote agriculture and to educate the public about its importance in all of our lives. The first Connecticut Agricultural Fair was held on the Durham Fairgrounds where it was held until the mid-1980s when the Fair moved to the scenic fairgrounds in the foothills of the Berkshires in Goshen, Connecticut.
Sadly, in the fall of 2006, the Fair Board of Directors voted to cancel the Connecticut Agricultural Fair and disband the orgnaization, effective November 1, 2006.
Take a look through the Grange Scrapbook for memories of the Connecticut Agricultural Fair throughout it's 39 years.
