The best end of summer events in Massachusetts

Posted On: 08/10/2018

Not only is it a beautiful place, but Massachusetts is filled with local communities, and a long history of holding events that celebrate them. As the summer draws to a close, there are two fairs and festivals in particular that you should not miss: Brimfield Antiques Show and Marshfield Fair.

Brimfield Antiques Show takes place twice a summer — mid-July and the upcoming event in early September. Soon celebrating its 60th anniversary, Brimfield is possibly the most famous antiques show and flea market in New England. While actually composed of more than 20 independent shows, Brimfield brings together over 5,000 dealers and vendors to the mile-long stretch along Route 20 with their jewelry, furniture, clothing, and more. This is the perfect place to treasure hunt while the weather is still warm!

The second event you must visit if you’re in town for it is he Marshfield Fair. Taking place from August 17th to the 26th, this fair has been in operation since 1867 — the same year Nebraska became a state, the USA purchased Alaska, and Harvard created the country’s first dental school. A lot has changed since, but Marshfield Fair remains as one of the state’s most beloved events. From agricultural demonstrations to crafts, rides, games, contests, and more, Marshfield has something for everyone.
