Dear Friend of the Fair: 

We’re proud to bring you the 2022 Gouverneur & St. Lawrence County Fairs.  This will be the 163nd Gouverneur Fair and the 170th St. Lawrence County Fair!  This long running tradition runs from August 2nd through August 7th.

Coleman Brothers will once again provide our carnival.  They provide a clean and friendly business, providing rides for young and old alike.  Advanced discounted ticket sales will be available from Coleman’s before the fair at their website: www.colemanshows.com.    

The fair kicks off on Tuesday the 2nd, at 4:00 p.m. with Sawyer Brown performing at 8:00.  Food and beverage will be available. New this year,Rides will not open up until 1:00 on Wednesday August 3rd. Band Day and the Fireman’s Parade and High School Band competitions will take place at 7:00 p.m.  Harness Racing is on Thursday, the 4th, with the Annual Talent Show taking place that evening.  Friday evening we’ll see the return of the New York Hot Farm Pulling Series.  Saturday’s free Grandstand area events feature Revolution, along with the chance to win some super prizes.  We finish with Larger Than Life – The Ultimate Boyband Tribute.  You’ll dance to music from the Back Street Boys, NSYNC, New Kids on the Block and more!  Sunday brings the annual Demolition Derby starting at 12:00 p.m.      

Daily Grounds Acts are free entertainment for the entire family.  Returning are Rosaire’s Royal Racers and Eudora Farm’s, with some of the world’s most fascinating & exciting animals.    

We continue to make improvements to the grounds and programming with sponsorship funds.  Last year’s projects included the completion on the renovation of our second dairy barn with a NYS Grant and local fair funds.    

We are proud of our agricultural community and the cattle, sheep, poultry and horses’ exhibitors bring to the fair for competition.  The Youth Building, FFA Barn and show ring will be in full swing with many 4-H and FFA members.  Many exhibitors go on to state and national competitions. 

Admission to the fairgrounds is free.  We ask guests for a $5 parking fee.  Like most rural fairs we struggle to make enough in one week to pay for a year’s worth of expenses.  We receive a percentage of the carnival ride income and we collect fees for vendor space.  With little hired labor, many of our Directors volunteer countless hours to maintain the buildings and grounds.  We’re always looking for volunteers and encourage you to contact us if interested.    

Sponsorship is an excellent opportunity to market your business and gain the benefits from extra exposure at the Fair.  Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond levels are available; receiving added advertising exposure for each increased level of sponsorship.    

Please know we greatly appreciate your financial support in helping us put on this event for our community, county and surrounding area.  We wouldn’t be able to do it without you!  All of the Directors thank you very much for your consideration and please do come see us at the fair.  We will be looking for you!!
