The Conklin Fair returns for their 44th year of food, friends and festivities!

The Conklin Fair will kick off on Thursday, July 16th with a First Responders' Parade and will close with Fireworks on Saturday, July 18th at 942 Conklin Road in Conklin. Admission to the fair is free.

The Conklin Fair will offer fun for everyone in your family from live music to rides and amusements. There will also be vendors, free games for the kids, delicious fair food and much, much more!

The Conklin Fair Committee has announced that they've joined forces with  the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) for a promotion called “Fill the Bus for CHOW at the Conklin Fair.”  The CHOW Bus will be on the grounds of the Conklin Fair during fair hours and will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items.
