87th Cannon Grange Agricultural Fair & Exposition
August 25, 2019$2
An authentic agricultural fair, the Cannon Grange Ag Fair is the only fair of its kind in lower Fairfield County! Area residents are invited to exhibit a variety of baked goods and culinary arts, homegrown vegetables, fruit, flowers, hand crafts, sewing & needlework, photography, small farm animals, eggs and photography.
The Cannon Grange Fair recalls Wilton’s rural and agrarian past, and provides an opportunity for children, youth, adults and families to enjoy the exhibits inside the historic Grange Hall and on its grounds located in the heart of Cannondale Village. Several state-level baking contests are available from the Association of CT Fairs with their Adult Baking, Junior Baking and 2-Crust Apple Pie Contests. Both concessionaires and area Non-Profits will also show on the fair grounds.
A new baking contest is being inaugurated in 2019 with the “Dave Barrett–Cannon Grange Perpetual Trophy” contest. Dave and his wife Joyce have been avid fair participants, having won many baking contests in previous years. Dave succumbed to illness last year and we’ve renamed this special contest in Dave’s memory.
