Eastern States Exposition is a not-for-profit corporation committed to excellence in providing year-round opportunities for the development and promotion of agriculture, education, industry and family entertainment while preserving our New England heritage.
Exposition is organized as a not-for-profit corporation under the laws of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts to: Provide an educational experience for urban and rural persons, especially youth, through programs and exhibitions designed to include local and regional participation, demonstration and competition. Provide a show window to present the agricultural and other resources of the Northeast and beyond. Provide regional facilities for use in serving the best interests of New England and the Northeast. Focus attention on the New England heritage and its pioneering spirit that contributes to continuing progress.
The Big E takes place at the Eastern States Exposition September 16-October 2. It is the largest fair in the Northeast; we annually attract over one million people through our gates during our 17-day run. We are always looking for exhibits that have new and different products from those we annually present.
