Barnstable County Fair July 18 Thru 26, The Village People

Located at Barnstable County Fairgrounds RT 151 East Falmouth Massachusetts. The Barnstable County Fair is one of the oldest County Fairs in the USA. The Barnstable County Agricultural Society held its first fair, consisting primarily of livestock and handicraft exhibits, in October of 1844 at the County Court House in Barnstable Village.
Today The Barnstable County Fair has been an annual summer tradition on Cape Cod for 164 years. The Fair is a place where families can spend the day together and share experiences they can only experience at the Barnstable County Fair. There are animal shows, 4-H demonstrations, petting zoos, horticulture displays, rides, games, live music, arts & crafts, food and commercial vendors with various arts and crafts for sale. The Fair also has a huge Midway from Rockwell Amusements.
Click Entertainment For Schedule. Demolishion Derby is July 23rd, thats my favorite, and The Village People are performing July 25Th. Remember them.
A locals way of getting around Cape Cod. Cape Cod and Barnstable County has some of the worst traffic of any tourist destination you will find. People have been known to sit in traffic for hours to go just a few miles. Locals hardly ever sit in traffic. Why ? The back roads of Cape Cod. Before coming to Cape Cod Buy a good map or get to know your 3G Smartphone , iPhone or GPS Map System. There are roads all around the Barnstable County Fair Grounds that you can use. If you are coming from Hyannis towards mashpee/ East Falmouth look for Barnstable Road. Barnstable road forks off to the right just before the Mashpee rotary and go's around the rotary. Follow it to the 1st stop sign and go strait through and follow it to Rt 151 and turn right. Once you turn right onto 151 you may come to a dead stop. look on your map for Johns Pond and the roads around it (Right Side Of 151). These roads are extensive so don't get lost, but some of the come out behind the Fair Grounds. You can duck out of traffic instead of sitting in your car wasting gas.
If you are coming from the Falmouth, Bourne area look for Sandwich Rd. If you take a good look at a good map you will find roads coming in from every direction. Basiclly you want to avoid Rt 28 and rt 151 as much as possible till the last minute. Click Directions To Barnstable County Fair for Google Mapping to the Barnstable County Fair.
