Description: Fairs originated in Europe and were important social events during the Renaissance period. The first fair in the New World was held in 1810 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts when farmers joined together for a livestock show. Since then agricultural fairs have become a staple annual event in counties across the country. The first Jersey County Fair was held in 1868 and every July, the Jersey County Fairgrounds becomes the home to an old-fashioned county fair. With nightly events at the grandstand, rides and games at the carnival, exhibits, farm animals and more, the Jersey County Fair offers fun for the whole family.
