When you think of Durham, you can’t help but think of the Durham Fair, the largest agricultural fair in New England and the largest all volunteer fair in the country. Many large agricultural fairs, as they have grown, have replaced volunteer management with a paid staff and have struggled to maintain the character of their fair. But the Durham Fair has successfully managed to remain 100 percent volunteer run and a true agricultural fair since 1916.
The newly elected officers, coordinators and supervisors have started planning for the 2013 Fair on September 26-29. Daniel Miramant, newly elected Vice President said, "Like many in our town, I have been involved in the Fair in different capacities for a number of years. My hope is that while in this position, I can contribute to the preservation of the great heritage of our Fair and it’s agriculture relevance for our Town and the State of Connecticut.”
If you have ever thought about getting involved with the Fair, now is the perfect time. There are many opportunities available. It is sure to be a rewarding and exciting experience. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
