Event details
Come One, Come All!  To the 27th Annual QUEENS COUNTY FAIR
Saturday and Sunday, September 25 and 26, - 11:00 a.m.  to 6:00 p.m.  at the Queens County Farm Museum in Floral Park, New York.  The Crown Province of Ostgardr will be conducting a demo during the fair.

A traditional county fair with blue ribbon competitions in livestock, produce, home crafts, arts and crafts, and more.  Enjoy the Amazing Maize Maze, pie-eating and corn-husking contests, pig racing, make-your-own-scarecrow, hayrides, petting zoo, carnival rides and midway and Irish and German bands.  Visit the Bavarian Garden, craft and food vendors.  Fun for the entire family!  Admission (for non-participants):  Adults $7.00; children (12 and under) $4.00

Since the farm is an educational enterprise, the theme of the demo is educating the audience.  Our demo will include fighting, fencing, archery and display of arts, crafts and culture.  All gentles are encouraged to bring their armor, bows and displays.  Gentles are encouraged to talk to people about medieval history and culture.

Set-up is from 9:00 a.m.  to 10:30 a.m.  each morning.  During that time, you will be able to drive right up to our location at the Fair to unload.  Vehicles must be off the grounds before the Fair opens to the public at 11:00 a.m.  If you arrive after 11:00 a.m., please park in the Exhibitor Parking and carry your gear in.  Overnight camping is encouraged. 

Site Opens: 11 a.m.
Site Closes: 6 p.m.
