FLORENCE BANK is once again providing the sponsorship support needed to provide seamless entertainment  in the Social Tent all weekend long. Nuge’s Audio & Event Lighting will be on site to support the entertainers. Thanks again Florence Bank for your continuing support.


Belchertown Fair is a unique blend of  history and community as well as  FREE entertainment. There are few places you can go for  3 days and be totally entertained.  There are many opportunities to spend money on the items that vendors have for sale or on the typical “fair food” that you smell cooking as you walk around, but it is not necessary  to have a great time.  Admission is FREE. This event is possible because of thousands of hours of volunteers and the generous sponsorship of local businesses and individuals. Multiple events are occurring  at one  time and are geared to  visitors of all ages. As you stroll around the common, you will see people you know and catch up on what is happening in their lives.  There are ample opportunities to people watch and make new friends. Entertainment is  divided by the audience it is aimed at. The Social tent is principally adult. The Kids Tent through the day is aimed at younger children but late afternoon/early evening shifts its focus. Please check both areas as all of the entertainment is designed to be family friendly.

 Our schedule is nearly complete but we continue to tweek it  so check back often and it will be updated as we add entertainers and activities.


159th Belchertown Fair Schedule of Events
* Remember the common gets quite crowded.

For the safety of all attendees please leave all pets at home.

Service Dogs are always welcome.
