In 2012 the Bolton Fair had a very poor turnout because of 3 days of rain, this created deep financial trouble. If the Bolton Fair doesnt make enough money this year to pay their bills, their 53 acres of land will be sold to housing developers and the fair will close for good. The Bolton Fair was established in 1874. Since the beginning the Bolton Fair is run entirely by a volunteer staff and is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Please come out and enjoy a full day of live music, with Great BBQ to help save the Bolton Fair and Fairgrounds, so that they can continue to offer fun events and festivals like this again next year.
