The foundation of the fair (big or small) is all about agricultural education. The fair is “really about the kids” learning about real life. The fair is something you can’t read about in a book or find on a city street; it is something you have to see. Come visit us and see the hard work ethic of our agriculture families and our 4-H kids that showcase their hard work, all striving for excellence. You might find something that your own kids have been missing out on. Fairs are a celebration of who we are, what we do and where we live. Fairs are all about families. The Cortland Junior Fair was formed in 1953 by a group of individuals who formed the County of Cortland Agricultural Corporation. The Cortland fair is a member of The New York State Association of Agricultural Fairs, The International Associations of Fairs and Expositions. We run in conjunction with Cortland County Cornell Cooperative Extension. Midway games and rides are provided by Ontario Amusements.
