There are a number of agricultural fairs coming up in the next few weeks throughout New Hampshire. These fairs are a great tradition and feature entertainment for the entire family. Events range from oxen pulls to apple pie contests. Most fairs have live entertainment and amusement rides. You’ll find livestock exhibits with cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and more. And there are exhibits featuring home made baked and canned goods as well as home grown fruits, vegetables and flowers.
We wouldn’t be surprised if the original owners of the home that is now the Inn On Golden Pond participated in some of these fairs in their early years. Some date back 140 years. While we don’t raise any livestock or produce vegetables worthy of showing at a fair we do provide a quality lodging experience by Squam Lake in the heart of New Hampshire’s lakes region. Why not spend a few relaxing days at our Holderness bed and breakfast and enjoy one of New Hampshire’s longest traditions by attending one of the following fairs.
