The Big E


The Big E, the largest Fair in the Northeast, takes place in West Springfield, Mass. from September 12 though the 28th.

Visit the Midway for daily parades, attend concerts, go on thrilling rides, shop at Craft Common, and so much more. Check out all the options at And, don't forget to visit my favorite area, The Avenue of the States.

Each of the 6 New England State buildings is a scaled-down version of the original State House, and you'll want to experience all the exhibits and goodies unique to each state. In the Connecticut building, don't miss "Love to Read Connecticut Authors", a book store sponsored by Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association (CAPA.) Every day there will be different Connecticut authors signing books in a variety of genres. As much as we don't want to think about December, it is after all, only three months away, and autographed books make great gifts.

Make sure you go to the Big E on an empty stomach because you will find yourself in the midst of vendors that sell every kind of food imaginable. And, don't forget to check out the food specialties in each of the state buildings. What a picnic!!

Enjoy this once in a year experience!
