Since 1937, September marks the time of year when members of our community and friends come together to celebrate the successes of the previous year. Through lean and bountiful years this annual tradition has, without fail, commemorated the efforts and hard work of our local agricultural community. From our humble beginnings 80 years ago, the Waterford Community Fair continues to thrive and offers something for everyone, of every age, on everyday, always beginning on Labor Day.
Monday kicks off with exhibit registration in all of our 18 Departments; floral, baking, vegetables, quilts, needle-work, youth crafts and livestock...to mention just a few. All exhibitors anxiously competing for ribbons, premiums and bragging rights.
Major entertainment events on the first day of the fair include our annual Horse Show and 4X4 Truck Pull. Don’t miss an afternoon visit from the Erie County Dairy Princess and get a taste of a GIANT ice cream sundae.
The remainder of fair week offers live music nightly at the gazebo as well as different pull events at our track and grand-stand area. Exhibits are judged, ribbons assigned, winners declared and boasting begins. Pack up the family and come visit us at the Waterford Fair. Once you’ve been here, we think you’ll agree.....
