Bridgewater Country Fair, August 21, 22 and 23rd. Parades, Animals, Crafts, Vendors, Agriculture, Rides, Food and More! A real country fair in Connecticut.

This weekend
Bridgewater country fair is the Bridgewater Country Fair, an annual event sponsored by the Bridgewater Fire Department. I stopped by the fairgrounds today and took photos in anticipation of the upcoming events. The tents are up, the "carnies" are there setting up the rides, the town is sprucing up, this is going to be another stellar local event! I found a fun page of facts about the Bridgewater Country Fair, check it out, it was fun info.

What can you expect? Check out the Bridgewater Country Fair website for more information. I know what I am looking forward to.

Friday night opening ceremonies begin at 6:30 pm, the parade at 6:45. Do get their early to get a good viewing spot. Volunteer fire departments from all over Connecticut and New York will be sporting their best, have polished up the fire engines, the antiques in anticipation of the event. I love the parade, and hope that I get a good spot for photo opps!

In addition to the parade, Hot Dog Pig Racing will begin at 4:30 PM on Friday and continue throughout the fair days.

I am also planning to go Sunday morning for the Oxen Pulls, I happen to know a few of the contestants personally and hope to get some good photos of the boys.

Perhaps antique tractor pulls are more to your liking, or how about the Kiddie Pedal Tractor Pull, that sounds like it would be great fun to watch! Among other things there will be pies, cakes, pickles, canned goods, vegetables, needlework, fancy poultry, dairy cattle, all to be judged. There is a wool & shearing event for the sheep fancier, Commerford Exotic Animals has a petting zoo, animal rides and educational programs. For more information check this out.

Vendors abound, with great items to purchase, and the midway will be full of fun rides and games! Music, food, and more. Something for everyone. Check out the schedule of events.

So change your plans if you are busy, or make plans to go if you're not busy. The Bridgewater Country Fair is a great place to go, it is a true, old fashioned country fair and a good time will be had by all.

Enjoy a few photos I took of the fairgrounds and around town and Lake Lillinonah. Bridgewater Connecticut, a wonderful place to visit and live!

Andrea sounds like it is going to be a great weekend. The fair is a big hit with many; and  because of the economy I think attendance has grown since many family can't afford to go away on vacations.

The Dutchess County Fair starts on the 25th.
