The Topsfield Fair, run by the Essex Agricultural Society, is dedicated to promoting education. The Society has been helping farmers since 1818 and strives to educate the community about the importance of farming and agriculture. Each year we open ten days prior to Columbus Day, with that being our closing day. No matter what your preference – rides, music, entertainment, agriculture, exhibits, food, shows, etc. – Topsfield Fair has something for you! But don’t take our word for it; “Make Time for a Great Time” and experience it yourself, October 4th – October 14th, 2013.
