“As sure as new lambs in the spring, county fairs and field days crop up in early summer and flourish through the early fall,” says the Vermont Department of Tourism.

Lamoille County Field Days is an agricultural fair held at the end of July. This three-day Lamoille County event began as a way for workers to spend a day away from the farm and exhibit their skills in a safe, competitive setting.

For more than half a century, in its current form, the (now) 10,000 visitors that arrive at the fairgrounds each summer can expect a weekend of affordable family fun and entertainment while still seeing the agricultural heritage and values of the past.

Watch kids compete in the pedal pull or uncles and fathers tow pound after pound in the tractor competition. There’s the demolition derby, draft horse demonstrations and pulling under the pavilion, lumberjack contests – of speed, might and more – and a midway full of exciting rides, music/entertainment and games!

Once your eyes and ears have taken in all the friendly rivalry and the ups and downs of the merry-go-round, you’ll need to stock up on fair food standards, such as delicious fried dough, ice cream and barbecue.

As the mission of Field Days is to “promote agriculture at a cost affordable to everyone,” the $10 general admission includes all of these activities:

  • 4-H Exhibits
  • Arm Wrestling
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Animal Pulling
  • Agricultural Products
  • Car Show
  • Children’s Activities
  • Demonstrations
  • Firehouse Grill
  • Horse Shows
  • Mid-way Rides and Games
  • Music/Entertainment
  • Pedal Pull
  • Talent Show
  • Tractor Pull

The Lamoille County Field Days Fair Grounds is located at 203 Wilson Road, Johnson, and parking is free.

It’s self-evident to say that there is more to Stowe and Northern Vermont than beautiful views and world-class skiing, although the two certainly don’t hurt the general appeal of the reason.
