In honor of Acton Fair week tell us your favorite memories. We look forward to making new memories with you 2021 but until then here are some of ours.

After the recently released guidelines for reopening events in our state the Acton Fair has made the difficult decision to postpone our fair until August 2021.

Though this decision was not what we hoped for the safety and health of our exhibitors, guests, vendors and community is our highest priority.

Fair Spot Light.  Thank you Tony for all you do!

Fair Spot Light. Thank you Tony for all you do!

Sometimes the people in the back office don’t get enough attention! We’d like to introduce Tony Welch, Treasurer of the Acton Fair. Tony has been coming to the fair his whole life, and his grandfather before him was also deeply involved (as fair director, and superintendent of the steer and ox show and draft horse and pony show).

Many families have made the Acton Fair part of their summer tradition. Acton is a very family-oriented fair in more ways than one. It is a small, friendly fair that you can feel comfortable bringing your kids to have fun, and the fair stakeholders consider each other family as well (many of them are actually related!).

In Tony’s years at Acton the biggest changes have been improving the grounds and events each year. The addition of the tractor and truck pull and new track had been a huge benefit to the fair as a popular event. Since beginning his role as treasurer, Tony has had to learn a lot about the world of accounting and premium checks and paperwork but has taken on the task enthusiastically.

Tony reminds visitors, “If you’ve never been to the Acton Fair, be sure to visit the whole fair. Don’t stop at the carnival - visit the barns, 4-H exhibits, Little Farmers activity, and independent exhibitors. There’s something here for everyone!” And… today is a perfect day to visit an agricultural fair!
