Berlin, Connecticut, USA
Since 1949, The Berlin Lions Club has operated the Berlin Fair and it has been the main event in town ever since. The fair takes place the weekend of the first Sunday in October of every year and marks the end of Connecticut's Agricultural Fair Season. Each year brings new and exciting things to the Berlin Fair. If you have never visited, we invite you to stop by and see one of Connecticut's largest Agricultural Fairs.
The Fair boasts many fine food choices freshly prepared by the Berlin Lions Club and numerous local churches and non-profit organizations. Food choices range from favorites such as hot dogs, hamburgers and fried dough to pulled pork sandwiches, fried clams and steak and cheese. The many local non profit organizations utilize the fair as their main fund raiser. There are endless streets of commercial vendors as well as fundraising tables for local groups such as Boy Scouts, the Berlin High School Band and the Berlin High School Senior Class. The Berlin Fair proudly offers one of Connecticut's largest midways provided by Dreamland Amusements. Dreamland has a long standing tradition of offering Berlin fairgoers a world class amusement experience right in the heart of Connecticut.
Many of Connecticut's charitable organizations benefit from the money raised at the fair (Including the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, the CT Lions Low Vision Centers, CCARC and numerous local centers) but money is also directed to the local DARE program as well as scholarships to Berlin High School students. Along with these monetary gifts, the Lions of Berlin also use money raised at the fair to feed and offer gifts to those less fortunate around the holiday season.
