It Doesn’t Seem Fair to Have a Fair This Spectacular!

Have fun with your entire family at the Rochester Fair in New Hampshire

To us, there’s nothing better than the smells, sounds and excitement of a fair. Lights, funnel cakes and the laughter of children can turn any boring night into a fantastic evening. Come see how much fun Rochester can be with ten days at the Rochester Fair!

Dare to compare Rochester Fair…to the other guys

Bring your whole family for fun and entertainment you won’t find anywhere else. Our fair has something for everyone in the family! Check out our livestock, walk through our gigantic exhibit hall or get your adrenaline fix on New Hampshire’s largest carnival midway.

Once you’re done getting your fill of fun in the main fairgrounds, you can make your way over the track for some motor mayhem. Watch cars, buses and RVs circle each other in the pit before relentlessly smashing together in an effort to claim victory. Some fairs have demo derbies, we have the only bus demo derby in the northeast, and no other fair has a trailer race.

With NH’s largest midway, tons of entertainment and delicious fair food, Rochester Fair is the premier event in the area for the entire family.

You will be entertained under the big top at Circus Hollywood, visit with twigs the giraffe! Free with your paid admission.

At the Rochester Fair you’ll find tons of fun besides the livestock exhibit and demolition derby, including:
Our gigantic hall exhibits featuring your favorite contests.
