The Tunbridge World’s Fair, a family-centered, educational agricultural fair, remains one of the state’s best-known events.    Long traffic lines along major routes into Tunbridge in years past have signaled the fair’s great popularity, and articles in national and regional publications have attested to the fair’s authentic sense of Americana, from National Geographic magazine to the Boston Herald.   

The fair has run continuously since 1867 — except in 1918, due to the great flu epidemic, and during World War II — 145 years.   

“Last year, on opening day — Thursday — we had 2,500 kids come in at 9 a.m. on 65 buses,” said Alan Howe, president of the Tunbridge World’s Fair. “They had a lot of fun and in many cases they convinced their parents to bring them back on the weekend.”
