About the Fair:

The Chester Agricultural and Mechanical Society is comprised of approximately 35 Officers, Directors, and Superintendents. These individuals provide 100% of the management and operation of the Chester Fair, and the maintenance and improvements of their 17-acre fairgrounds.

None of our Officers, Directors, and Superintendents receives any compensation for their time and labor.

The Society meets every third Monday of the month except for December. Work crews are on the grounds most Saturday morning’s throughout the year.

If you are interested in helping with the planning and operation of the Chester Fair please contact us for more information.

Since moving to its new home the Chester Fair has continued to grow. The Fair was scheduled for a full weekend at the end of August. Several buildings have been erected on the Fairgrounds which are used for displays, games, and more. The Fair attracts people from all over the area and is now one of the largest annual events in Middlesex County.

The Fair has been held annually since its beginning in 1877 with the exception of 1905 and 3 years during World War II.

The 2010 Fair will be the 130th Fair and the 133rd Birthday of the Chester Agricultural and Mechanical Society.
