We get ready with a little help from our friends.

As we get ready for this year’s fair, we’d like to take a moment to thank some of our major sponsors: the Grow Monroe program supporting local farmer’s markets & direct-farm sales, Stable Fences & Vineyards LLC, and the Brockport Tractor Supply Co.

Please check them out, they do great work and we are grateful for their support of the fair!

A huge THANK YOU also to the volunteers who have been and will be helping with set-up.  Many hands make light work, and your assistance is greatly appreciated!

2014 Community Project

As part of the Monroe County Fair, we will be collecting knitted and sewn hats and mittens for the children of the Rochester Ronald McDonald House, sizes premie infant through large child.  We will accept the donated items at the Ski Lodge at Northampton Park on Monday, July 28th from 9am to 12pm.  We also encourage you to enter the home-made hats and mittens in our Fabric & Home Arts competition, so we can display your work during the fair before taking the donations to the Ronald McDonald House the following week.  

We enjoy giving back to the community each year and look forward to contributing to the Ronald McDonald house this year as we did last year with seamless pillow cases for the Wilmot Cancer Center.  We like to contribute to a variety of groups, so if you have suggestions for community projects that we can help out through future fair donation drives, please email the name and contact information to monroefair@gmail.com.
