The 28th Annual Queens County Fair, held at the Queens County Farm Museum September 25-26, offers city dwellers a traditional county fair experience, with all the fixings, in their own backyard.
The Queens County Fair offers families the chance to experience a traditional county fair with all the fixings - without actually having to leave the city. Now in its 28th year, the fair will be held in the Queens County Farm Museum, and will feature fun and games for all ages including blue ribbons awarded to livestock, an Amazing Maize Maze, hayrides, a petting zoo, carnival rides, a midway, arts and crafts, games, corn-husking and pie-eating contests, and much more.
As NYC's largest tract of undisturbed farmland, the Queens County Farm Museum is the only landmark of its kind that offers city residents the chance to unwind from chaotic city life. Museum visitors will have the chance to learn about sustainable agriculture, visit the farm's livestock, greenhouse, orchard and herb garden, check out historical farm buildings, and purchase fresh produce.
