The Hamburg Fair has been a tradition in Lyme since 1897.  For over 120 years the fair has brought together agricultural communities in the share to share its heritage, nostalgia, and fun filled experiences

that generations have enjoyed.  The fair reflects so much of what makes this a vital community that cares abouts its friends and neighbors and will do so for future generations.

During its history, the Hamburg Fairgrounds stood empty only 6 times.  Four years during World War II and for 2 years during the recent Coronavirus pandemic. In 2022 the fair returned, with improved experiences for its fair goers which included more family-oriented activities.

While keeping some of the traditional agricultural themes, top notch musical entertainment was provided each evening and more new activities were introduced for Saturday afternoon, such as additional children’s games and music, an RC Car racing track and a lady’s fry pan toss, along with expanded food vendor menus and the introduction of Beer and Wine sales on the fairgrounds!

This year the Hamburg Fair is celebrating its 121st fair this August 16, 17 and 18th  – COME FOR MORE IN 2024!

There will be even more fun-filled rides, great food and drink and additional family-oriented activities and contests. Not to be outdone by the Ladies tossing fry pans, this year you can show off your skills with a Hay Bale Tossing Contest! The Tug-of-War challenge will be new this year.

Just as the Hamburg Fair is committed to supporting its community, Fair weekend also supports local organizations with their fund-raising efforts.  Lyme/Old Lyme Boy Scout Troop 26,  Lyme Congregational Church and Lyme/Old Lyme High School Class of 2024 with the revenue from their car parking lots.  We encourage all fair goers to support these vital organization within our community.

We look forward to seeing YOU at this year’s HAMBURG FAIR.
