“So much to see.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

My fave is the Better Living Center. New products to buy and a bit of shopping. We eat our way thru the fair. Love fair food!

“The 9th largest fair in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

The Big E should not be missed!! It's here every Sept. for around 3 weeks. Everything from animals, crafts , jewelry and rides. Lets not forget every kind of food you can imagine too. They also have free entertainers all over the large fairgrounds. You can see a concert or a juggler even the circus!! Many of these attractions are included in the price of admission. All in all there is something for everyone at the Big E plan on arriving early and spending the day!
