The first county fair was held in Queens in 1693. Step back in time and enjoy pie eating and corn husking contests, tractor pulls, hayrides, carnival rides, and midway games.* Visit our Bavarian beer garden featuring traditional live music and dance, check out craft and food vendors and get recycling tips at the Con Edison Ecology booth. This traditional agricultural fair boasts blue ribbon competitions in produce, livestock, arts & crafts and more. The Amazing Maize Maze opens this weekend - be the first to find your way!
