The Schaghticoke Fair is celebrating its 203rd year of being a showcase for the best that Rensselaer County residents and agriculture have to offer.

Building after building will be bursting with vegetables, fruits, animals, antiques, baked goods and homemade crafts.

The 3rd oldest Fair in New York State takes great pride in being a Family Fair with hands on participation at its exhibits. Tasting, seeing, hearing and literally feeling agriculture in action is one of the best experiences we can offer.
