Days Until the Fair!

Welcome To The Bolton Fair!

From the Fair Committee:
A sincere thank you to all of the exhibitors, vendors, volunteers and patrons who made the 136th Bolton Fair possible. While the fair goes on annually rain or shine, the amount of effort and coordination put forth by our entirely volunteer committee during all times of the year is immense regardless of the weather. As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, we wholeheartedly believe the Lancaster Fairgrounds and The Bolton Fair are assets to the community, and are committed to supporting the agricultural roots of the communities of which we are a part. The fair is an incredibly costly event to put on and low attendance due to excessive rain and flooding this year has placed the fair and the fairgrounds in jeopardy for the future. Any donations to support our continued goal of maintaining the fairgrounds and the community events to which it hosts and supports are tax deducible and can be made to P.O. Box 154, Bolton MA 01740.
Thank you.

Our 137th Fair will be held on August 9 - 11, 2019 with a Midway Preview on August 8th!
