Let's Get Ready for the 2014 Fair

July 22-27, 2014

Traditionally the Saratoga County Fair was held the last full week in July. Over the last 10 to 15 years the Fair week has crept forward in the calendar, sometimes starting as early as the 12th or 13th of July.

That is too early both in the growing season, and for exhibitors who are preparing displays.

In 2014 we are returning to the old time slot, which will be July 22-27. This will mean an adjustment to the entries deadlines, and all else Fair. Please stay tuned to our website, and that way we will all wind up enjoying a great Fair in 2014.

In the rules for the Four Wheel Drive Truck Pull for Saturday’s Saratoga Co. Fair, there is a rule change/clarification.


“Exhaust must go upward. Must have two 3/8 minimum grade 5 crossbolts within an inch of each other as close to the turbo as possible. Tailpipes must have turn up (clamps acceptable).”
