YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Yorktown Grange, the only true country fair of its kind in Westchester County, will celebrate its 91st year in September.
Fair organizers announced the theme of this year’s fair, to be held Sept. 10-13, is “A Taste of the Farm.” New to the fair this year, Taste NY will present a variety of New York-based food and beverage vendors under one tent, offering both free tastings and products for sale to take home.
“We’re excited to welcome the Taste NY program to the Grange Fair this year,” Josh Davies, Grange Fair president, said. “The participating brewers, distillers and food vendors will be showcasing their products produces locally in New York state, which ties in nicely with the theme of this year’s fair, “A Taste of the Farm.”
For 91 years, the Grange Fair has remained true to its origin of celebrating Yorktown’s agricultural heritage with livestock, poultry and produce exhibits alongside carnival rides and midway games.
While maintaining traditions is a cherished and integral part of the annual Grange Fair, each year also presents new attractions and entertainment. This year’s slate of entertainers and events is already in full planning mode, and will be announced in the next few weeks.
Last year saw a few major changes implemented due to attendee feedback: a new carnival ride company was brought in to offer a new selection of rides and games; and the fair began accepting credit cards for ride tickets for the first time.
There will also be a couple of noticeable changes this year, according to Davies. “This year we’re debuting ‘Throwback Thursday’ with $2 admissions and discounted rides from 6-10 p.m. as a preview of the midway," he said.
