Welcome to the 2013 FairC'mon down to the 172nd
172 YEARS of Heritage and Traditions
Thousands of people will pass thru the gates of the Saratoga County Fair in 2013 as we celebrate 172 years of traditions and fun.
The origin of the Fair actually goes back to 1819 when state legislation created County Fairs. Basically a one day cattle show, this early version was discontinued after 1824.
The modern version of the Saratoga County Fair began when the Saratoga County Fair Association was formed June, 24, 1841 at the Saratoga County Court House in the Village of Ballston Spa; County Clerk Archibald Smith was named the first Fair Secretary. The next year, it expanded to two days.
More than a century and a half later, agriculture remains one of the largest industries in Saratoga County, and the annual County Fair stands as an important event on a busy summer calendar, featuring hundreds of vendors, a large amusement midway and 30 acres of activities for young and old.
