Deerfield Fair is one of the New Hampshire’s last fall festivals, which is also known as “New England’s Oldest Family Fair“. Each autumn, the four-day events of Deerfield fair attract huge crowds to admire animals, produce and crafts, or enjoy amusement park rides. In this current year, 2010 Deerfield Fair has been already started from 30th September and it ends on 3rd October.

The Deerfield Fair 2010 is the best state fair and the largest agriculture fair in New Hampshire. The 134th annual Deerfield Fair holds a “weigh off” for pumpkins plus squash in cooperation with the New Hampshire Giant Pumpkin Growers Association (NHGPGA). On Thursday, the fair opened with the traditional ceremony, coordinated by Meredith Briggs of Deerfield.

“The crowd was pretty good for a Thursday with off-and-on showers. The fair hopes to get about 100,000 people to see the exhibits, horse shows and livestock competitions,” said by fair association president Sheryl Bolduc.

Deerfield was a farming community in 1976 which had come to grips with the two fold dissatisfactions of having been bypassed by the railroads and of having missed out on being selected the capital of New Hampshire. Due to these non happenings, Deerfield fair were first organized in 1876, much less continued holding it for the next century.
