New England’s Largest Fair Is Finally Back This Weekend

After a year-long hiatus, The Big E is finally back!

The Big E, the largest (and arguably the best) fair in New England finally returns this weekend on September 17. Running until October 3, this fair will be home to concerts, parades, circuses, butter sculptures, and food vendors as far as the eye can see.


The Big E is the fifth largest fair in the United States and is held on the grounds of the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Massachusetts—just an hour and a half drive outside of Boston. Usually, the fair is held every fall starting mid-September, but for the first time in decades, the event was canceled in 2020.

The good news is that it’s back and better than ever this year, with some great entertainment. This year at the Big E, they’ll be hosting a series of concerts including Machine Gun Kelly opening night, Pat Benatar, Styx, Flo Rida, and the Goo Goo Dolls.

Without a doubt, you’ll get some absolutely decadent fair food when you attend.  From baked potatoes to fried Oreos to a signature Big E Cream Puff, there’s a snack for everyone.

Stay up-to-date on any new updates or safety restrictions at the Big E by checking out their Facebook and Insta pages.

Find The Big E at 1305 Memorial Ave, West Springfield, MA 01089
