Berlin Fair

430 Beckley Road
East Berlin, CT 06023


From its inception in 1882 as a Harvest Festival, The Berlin Fair still remains a focal point of the community. In the early 1900's, the festival became the State Agricultural Fair and was held annually until 1919. Brought back to life in 1948 by The Berlin Lions Club.

The Berlin Fair has provided local community groups the opportunity for fundraising with booths offering home made foods, crafts, services and games. A favorite with all Fairgoers is the animal exhibits and pulls that occur throughout the weekend. In addition, the Fair has a varied entertainment schedule with everything from Pie Eating Contests and Frog Jumping to music for all ages and an exciting Midway.

Funds raised by the Berlin Lions Club over the years have been used to support both youth and adult activities in Berlin and the surrounding community. Scholarships, youth athletic programs, DARE, and senior activities are just a few of the groups that have benefited from the Fair. We also support the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation and the CT Lions Low Vision Center as part of the Lions commitment to sight programs.

Held annually on the first weekend in October, the Berlin Fair is listed as a major fair by the State Agricultural Fair Association. If you have never visited the Berlin Fair, we invite you to join us this year at the Fair!
