TunbridgeFair_VTblog.jpg Vermont's 138th Tunbridge's World's Fair intricately knits the past, present and future together for four days of working antique displays, horse, pony and oxen pulling, horse racing, exhibits, free shows, midway, food and more. All this in one place -- the Tunbridge Fairgrounds. The Tunbridge World's Fair has run continuously since 1867 except in 1918, due to the great flu epidemic, and during World War II. This weekend, Sept. 17-20, the Fair celebrates the Garden Harvest only the way Vermont can - with competitive exhibits featuring a wide variety of vegetables and fruits grown by local Vermont gardens. This is a display created entirely by enthusiastic gardeners and like no other you've seen. The Tunbridge Fairgrounds are bustling with energy and autumnal traditions entertaining all generations with old-school simplicity this weekend. Admission is $5-10 with free parking and please leave your pets at home.
