Dear Fairgoers,

After careful consideration and multiple attempts to find some alternative, we have unfortunately had to cancel the 2020 Great Schaghticoke Fair.

The health and safety of our community is always a priority. We have sought guidance from state organizations and officials, and unfortunately there is no clear way we can safely host our fair. We recognize this is a great disappointment to many Fairgoers, Vendors, Exhibitors, Small Businesses and our Local Community. We want you all to know we consider it a privilege and an honor to showcase the best of Rensselaer County Agriculture- and to support all of you. We thank you for your 200 years of support.

We will use this time to plan you an outstanding event for 2021.

Be safe and well,
The Board of Directors



Dear Business Partners and Friends,

We are certainly living in unique and unprecedented times. We hope that this letter finds you safe, happy and healthy.

We at the Schaghticoke Fair have been working diligently to try and bring a fair to each of you, and our fairgoers, for the 2020 Season. Unfortunately, we have had no success gaining any clear guidance from the State on when the necessary permits will be available. All we know is that at this time, they are not. If we were to try and host a fair right now, it would be without permits and in direct contradiction of the Governor’s Executive Order.   Read More
