WASHINGTON CO., N.Y. — At the annual New York State Agricultural Society meeting this January, the Washington County Fair was awarded the Ag Promotion Award. In Washington County, the fair has been bringing together the agriculture industry and the greater community since 1890. Orchestrated by an army of volunteers, the fair’s mission is to provide an inside look to Washington County agriculture through a series of interactive exhibits, livestock demonstrations and shows, educational materials, and local food and drink samplings. Each August, the fair opens its doors to over 115,000 fairgoers for a week of family fun!
The New York State Agricultural Society was organized in 1832 to foster, promote, and improve the New York State Food & Agriculture Industry through education, leadership development & recognition programs. The Washington County Fair is honored to win the Ag Promotion award recognizing the work of our Board of Directors and volunteers that make the Washington County Fair possible each year!
