We also know that parking at the fair can be chore. So why not ride or walk the Danvers Rail Trail (and the Topsfield Linear Common) to the Fair? Starting in downtown Danvers at the Hobart/Charter Street parking lot, it’s about 4.5 miles. 

Walk or Ride the Trail to the 2017 Topsfield Fair – September 29th to October 9th

We all know the Topsfield Fair! One of the oldest in America, the fair was started in 1818 and has run almost every year since. The fair today features carnival rides, games and concert events in addition to the more traditional attractions, such as exhibitions of livestock, rabbits and cavies, crafts, horses and produce.


The fair also hosts the All New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-Off.
