The Afton Driving Park
2015 Farm Days
July 9 - 11, 2015
Route 41, Afton, NY ~ 607-639-1525
In 2015, the Afton Driving Park will hold "Farm Days at the Afton Driving Park" from Thursday, July 9 - Saturday, July 11. Although we were unable to secure a midway, we have lots of family friendly activities planned.
IMPORTANT NOTICE ***Poultry and other birds banned at all fairs in New York State***
New York State is banning poultry and other birds at all fairs in New York State in 2015. This ban is due to the rapid spread of bird flu in other parts of the country and Canada. While not a threat to humans, bird flu is deadly to poultry and other birds. No known cases exist in New York at this time. For more information read this article from Times Union
The ban covers chickens, pigeons, turkeys, pheasants, guinea fowl, bantam poultry, geese and ducks.
We have several grandstand events this year. On Thursday, July 9, we will hold the annual harness racing event, followed later by the "Down on the Farm" Community Parade, the Fireman's Challenge Games and at dark, fireworks sponsored by NBT Bank. K-F Rodeo will return to the Afton Driving Park on Friday, July 10 with a 7:00 pm start time. Finally on Saturday, July 11, Catskill Garden Tractor Pullers will hold a pull starting at 9:00 am. Registration for the Off the Street Truck Pull starts at noon at the south gate, with grandstand admission starting at 4:30 pm and a 6:00 pm start time.
DJ Dave will present "Team Trivia" on the entertainment stage from 3:00 to 7:00 pm on Thursday, July 9. On Saturday, the Miss Frozen Pageant will be held from 10:00 am until noon, followed immediately by the Karaoke Contest, hosted by Northern Star Productions and later, starting at 4:00 pm a Battle of the Bands will be held.
As always, the Youth Dairy Show will be held on Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11 and the Wagner Nineveh Open Horse Show will be held on Saturday, July 10. The small animal display will be open daily for several hours each day. Kids, bring your rabbits and enter them into the Rabbit Show that will be held on July 9! Unfortunately, due to Bird Flu, poultry and other birds have been banned from all county fairs and the NY State Fair. Other Agricultural Shows and displays as well as displays from local organizations and games will also be present. For more information, visit the Other Grounds Events page.
