“Real Commercial”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

Lost its local fair air as the fair arts/crafts and activities are overwhelmed by the commercialism. Have not seen anything really new or interesting there in a few years. I grew up with TX state fair and love the local fairs so this one is a pass

“Don't miss the Big E”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

What ever you are doing when the Big E is going on....STOP. Take in the unique experience see shows hear international superstars perform as you walk down "memory lane". You will see great shows the staff is second to none and they have something for everyone. Do yourself a well earn favor and visit this great piece of New England history and culture. You will not be disappointed!!!

“Energetic but Crowded”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

Expensive (entry and parking) but a pretty stimulating carnival to take your kids to (food, rides and animals). Doesn't change much year-to-year so we go every five years or so (can't see doing it annually), but it's nice to hit every once in a while.
