Review of The Big E

The Big E is well worth one visit. The arena and animal displays are great, but the crowds are a bit over whelming. Also the cost of parking, entrance fees, food, and amusements add up fast, especially for a family.

Had a good time. The food is plentiful and the crafts are wonderful. Many things to see and do. Rides for the kids and the kids at heart.

It's is my favorite thing of the year! I absolutely love going to the Big E with friends or family! Be prepared to gain 10 lbs though! There's so much other fun things to do and see there, other than eating!

Overpriced, marginal food, somewhat dirty, cheesy booths selling mostly cheap crap. Crowds are obnoxious, carney atmosphere in many areas.

This was the fifth year of the West Springfield, Mass. Fiber Festival.
We had already been to Rhinebeck's Fiber Festival and there is no comparison, as this festival would fit into a corner of Rhinebeck's. I think in another few years Big E Fiber Festival will grow and only get better. The best part was the building was heated!
