The Guilford Fair honors and promotes Vermont’s agricultural traditions in a way that is both educational and entertaining. People come to relax and to watch the horse draw, cattle and horse shows and sheep shearing and workhorse demonstrations. There is live music to enjoy and beautiful homegrown produce, flowers, handiwork and hobbies to admire. The Guilford Fair continues to be an opportunity to catch up with old friends, support community organizations, and enjoy the last fleeting days of summer.The Guilford Fair was first held on Labor Day September 7, 1942. It was a day when work was set aside for a little while, and friends and neighbors were able to gather and catch up on the events of the summer. It was a huge success and an annual tradition was born.
