Covid-19 Update: 2021 Fair Cancelled

Fairgrounds located at 6565 East River Road, Rush, NY

Along with most other festivals and events scheduled for this summer, the fair board has decided, for the protection of the community and fair volunteers, to wait one more year before holding the next Monroe County Fair. Over the summer, fair volunteers will be working to improve the buildings and grounds as part of the continuing effort to improve the fair. We look forward to seeing everyone when the fair returns in 2022, the dates will be announced later. Thank you for your support of the Monroe County (NY) Fair.

Fair History…

Throughout it’s long history, The Monroe County (NY) Fair has experienced several of ups and downs. For a nutshell history, see “Whatever Happened To The (Old) Monroe County Fair?” As the article points out, during the past decade, there’s been a big decline in the size of the fair. Now, having just completed it’s 3rd year at a new location in Rush, things are looking up. While the Monroe County Fair is small compared to other county fairs, it has begun to take on it’s own unique character. The rides and midway are gone and the carnival atmosphere has been replaced with a more family friendly vibe that puts the emphasis on agriculture, animal shows, crafts, music and promoting local talent. With the dates set for 2021, the fair looks to expand it’s offerings. It may come as a surprise, but the fair operates without any support from the county it serves. It is only through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers and sponsors that the Monroe County Fair tradition continues. If you would like to get involved, contact the fair office at 585.662.5543 or email eileenmcf@me.com.
