A fun start to the 98th Durham Fair


DURHAM — The Durham Fair, the largest agricultural fair in Connecticut, continues the 98-years tradition this weekend with all sorts of activities for festival goers.

Aside from the thousands of people in attendance, the fair also includes thousands of vendors and attractions. Attractions range from carnival games and rides, to a lumberjack show and a farm museum. There is also a section dedicated just for kids.

Food is also a major part of the fair. People can find traditional fair foods like funnel cakes and hot dogs, or they can snack on something a little different like chocolate covered bacon or a donut the size of their head.

Perhaps one of the biggest events comes at night with live concerts for no extra price. This year features award winning country duo Brothers Osborne and 80’s classic rock singers Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo.

Entrance to the fair is $14 for adults and free for children 11 and under. The fair runs through Sunday.
