Essex County Fair has undergone a number of improvements over the past few years. Along with complete renovations to Historic Floral Hall, a new family stage was constructed on the south end near the CCE building that hosts our Music Series and Featured Shows. This area of the grounds has become a family friendly place to relax and listen to music while the youngsters play in the sandbox. There is a "Mom’s Relaxation Center" available near by. A great line up of Entertainment welcomes you as you walk by or just want to sit and relax. Hope you check out our line up as follows. Times will be added as schedule is finalized in the near future so keep checking in.
Buffalo Barfield and Unherd of Entertainment will be on stage several times each day. This is an entertaining variety show with music and lots of laughs. http://www.buffalobarfield.com/
