Four Town Fair: Somers

September 12 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free – $6

​Sept 12 – Sept 15, 2024

The Four Town Fair is considered the oldest continuous Agricultural Fair in Connecticut. It happened in the winter of 1838-1839. People commented: Let’s have a contest! People gathered to have their contest; and 420 cows and oxen showed up. Nobody had ever seen so many cows and oxen in one place

What are the towns in the Four Town Fair? The towns are Somers, East Windsor, Enfield and Ellington. Throughout the years, various locations were utilized by the four towns until 1960. The fair society, known as the Union Agricultural Society, purchased land in Somers as the permanent location of all future fairs. In 1964, the Society conducted its first three-day fair so that many more people could attend. Today, crowds are estimated at nearly 20,000 each year.
