Fall Festival & Agricultural Fair



Goats and horses and birds, oh my!


Fair Entries & Premium Book:

There are exhibitions in more than 150 categories of judged baked goods, preserves, hand-made needlecrafts and the industrial arts—including tin, iron and wooden wares; pottery; cooperage (barrel making); printing; and broom and soap making.

Youth compete in 60 different aged categories, from penmanship and pottery to photography and pumpkin pie.

Among the competitions are those for the largest pumpkin, one for weight and a second for size. The competitions are open to museum members and the public alike, and most have both 19th-and 21st-century categories. Download the Premium Book here and learn how to enter—this year entrants will receive one day free admission to the Fair!

Eye-catching 19th-century vegetables, many of them unfamiliar to modern gardeners, will also be found in a special vegetable and floral tent.

Prize-winning sheep, oxen, and cows will be on display, in addition to a poultry show, sponsored by the Rochester Poultry Assn. On Saturday watch the goat show and competition hosted by the Genesee Valley Dairy Goat Club.
