The theme of this year's fair, A Taste of the Farm, highlights the value and benefits of fresh, local produce. Buying local supports the local community, protects the environment, preserves open space and gives the us more control over the source of our food.
For 91 years, the Grange Fair has remained true to its origin of celebrating Yorktown’s agricultural heritage with livestock and produce exhibits, alongside carnival rides and midway games. This year we are delighted to welcome back local farms and exhibitors who have contributed so much to the community.
New to the Fair this year, Taste of NY will present a variety of New York-based food and beverage vendors under one tent, offering both free tastings and products for sale to take home. Participating brewers, distillers, and food vendors will be showcasing NY State products.
While maintaining traditions is a cherished and integral part of the annual Grange Fair, each year also presents new attractions and entertainment. This year’s slate of entertainers and events includes the ultimate Beatles Tribute Band, Strawberry Fields, with a special performance on Saturday evening.
Now that planting season is upon us, plan now for fair exhibits by planting produce and flowers to compete for this year’s blue ribbons!
