General Fair Information

  • The Middlesex County 4-H Fair, Inc. is a non-profit organization (501c) run entirely by volunteers.  A 14-member volunteer Board of Directors oversees the operation of the Fair and management of the fairgrounds in Westford.  There are a small number of individuals who are hired and paid for certain jobs during the Fair; these include some outside vendors and entertainers.
  • The Fair is an agricultural, non-commercial, youth fair, and all of our exhibitors are members of 4-H Clubs in Middlesex County. 
  • Fair Directors are elected to the Board at the Annual Meeting in November, for either a one or three year term.  If you have an interest in joining the Board, please speak up!  Send us a note through the Contact Us page. Vacancies do occur, and we are always looking for people who want to get involved.
  • All net proceeds after expenses that are received from the Fair and rental activity on the grounds are applied solely to the improvement, repair and/or maintenance of the grounds and equipment.
  • The grounds are rented to 4-H groups and outside organizations all summer long.  Dog shows, horse shows and other events take place almost every weekend beginning in May, right through the end of September.  If you have a club or organization that wants to use the grounds, please use the contact us option under Fairground Events.  There is a fee charged to all organizations for the use of the grounds.
  • Paid admission to the Fair does not include a parking pass for the grounds during the Fair.  A paid parking lot is available adjacent to the grounds, and free parking is available with a bus shuttle from the end of South Chelmsford Road.  Please see parking information for more details.
  • Please note that our schedule of events is subject to change during the weekend due to weather and availability of vendors.
