The Schaghticoke Fair, the 3rd oldest fair in New York State, returns this year bringing rides, exhibits, shows, entertainment and more!

A small town fair with a huge reputation, the Great Schaghticoke Fair draws people from near and far to enjoy the rides, great events, displays, activities and shows.

Agriculture and country culture is this Rensselaer County fair’s claim to fame, in addition to offering all the great rides, goodies and entertainment you’ve come to expect from a local fair.

The Rides

A Ferris Wheel, Merry-Go-Round and other traditional carnival rides and games are perfect for young ones and the young at heart. Each ride is worth a certain amount of tickets (usually 1-3 tickets, depending on the ride). See below for unlimited ticket pricing.

The Shows

With a park and tents featuring live music and entertainers, plus a grandstand overlooking fantastic motocross, demolition derby and tractor pulls, the Schaghticoke Fair has no shortage of great shows.

The Buildings

The Schaghticoke Fairgrounds are also host to buildings showcasing the agriculture of the region. Building after building will be bursting with displays, including vegetables, fruits, livestock, farm animals, equipment, antiques, baked goods and homemade crafts.
