Special & State Days


There’s a new experience each day of the Fair when you align your activities with The Big E’s special and state days! Dedicate a trip to walking through one of the State Buildings and visiting its exhibits. Be sure to watch the Daily Parade which honors each day in a special way. Live locally? Make sure to come on the day honoring your city or town and run into friends, neighbors and family.
