Flemington Fair

Late August through Labor Day, first Monday in September
The New Jersey State Agricultural Fair is held in Flemington from the end of August and continuing right through Labor Day. The event is a traditional agricultural fair that was started by a group of local farmers in 1856, making it one of the oldest state fairs in the country. It features a statewide 4-H lamb show and sale, a tractor pull, a horse and pony pull, and all types of car racing (mini-stocks, modified stocks, midgets, and super sprints). The fair also offers programs and exhibits of flowers, the 4-H organization, nurserymen, and various commercial enterprises.
