The Schaghticoke Fair
Celebrating 200 Years
August 28 – September 2, 2019
Everyday 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM
The Schaghticoke Fair will celebrate its 200th year of being a showcase for the best that Rensselaer County residents and agriculture have to offer.
Building after building will be bursting with vegetables, fruits, animals, antiques, baked goods and homemade crafts.
The 3rd oldest Fair in New York State takes great pride in being a Family Fair with hands on participation at its exhibits. Tasting, seeing, hearing and literally feeling agriculture in action is one of the best experiences we can offer.
While at the Fair, if you need assistance, please contact the Fair Office or any Ticket Gate.

A Nashville icon for more than two decades, Trace Adkins has made his mark on the country-music industry. 11 million albums sold. Time-honored hit singles. Momentous, fiery and always memorable live performances.
GRAMMY nominations. CMT and ACM awards. Nearly 200 million plays on YouTube. Hell, even a slew of movie and TV roles have come the Grand Ole Opry member’s way.
But ask Adkins what’s left to prove in his career and the small-town Louisiana native says it’s simple: the itch remains. To create. To collaborate. To continually feel the excitement that comes after whipping up a new song out of thin air and laying it down to tape. It’s what, after all these years, he says he still craves. “It’s an adrenaline rush and I love it,” says Adkins, who is back in the studio working on a new project via, BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records. “There’s nothing else like that,” the Louisiana naive offers. “That is still my favorite thing to do in this business.
Go into the studio with just some lyrics and a melody and then let the finest musicians in the world help take it and turn it into something magical. It liberates me. I just dig it!”
Trace Adkins Tickets Range in Price from $15-$45.
They do NOT include Fair Admission. Fair Admission must be purchased separately.
