Enjoy a bonus hour of fairgoing fun on Saturday; the museum will be open until 5 pm.

Kids 18 and under are admitted FREE!


Experience the spirit of a classic 19th-century magic show, or laugh along with the famous Punch & Judy puppet show. Visit Madam Sabotini to have your fortune read, or consult with our resident phrenologist as to the character reflected by the shape of your skull. Be sure to stop by for a tour of the museum’s fully-functioning, 19th-century brewery before bidding ‘hello’ to the ladies in the Temperance Tent. And don’t miss the Mayor’s Cup Championship and Consolation games at Silver Base Ball Park.

Goats and horses and birds, oh my!

Stop by the Livestock Tent to meet and learn about local cows, sheep and goats. Explore an extensive range of bird life in the Waterfowl Tent and in the Exhibition Barn during the Rochester Poultry Association's 110th Annual Show. Cheer on your favorite goat at the Genesee Valley Goat Club Show (Saturday) and the Myotonic "Fainting" Goat Club Show (Sunday). Befriend horses and donkeys as they parade around the Great Meadow and Historic Village. Be part of the excitement as professional herding dogs round up sheep, goats and ducks!
