There are a number of events happening at the fairgrounds through the rest of the summer, including racing by I-88 Speedway, Catskill Garden Tractor Pullers, a flea market and farmers market and the Afton Fun Shows.
If you want to get ride of some uneeded items around your home, or if you are a crafter or create hand-made items, the Afton Driving Park Flea Market is an inexpensive option!

Set up time starts at 8:30 am and the flea market will be open to the public at 10:00 am. Help get the word out by printing and posting or sharing our flea market flyer.

In late 2013, The Afton Fairboard conducted a feedback poll. Over 170 people in the area, from a wide range of ages, responded to the poll. The most frequent feedback we received was that we needed to bring back a Midway to the fair, followed closely by exciting grandstand entertainment. As you can see, we have secured a midway, Gillette Shows, for the 125th Afton Fair, and we are working on a grandstand event that will meet those expectations. Another common theme in the feedback was affordability. We as a fairboard have alway strived to make the Afton Fair an affordable event and will continue to do so.
Again, thank you to everyone who completed the poll. We appreciate your input!
I-88 Speedway has set their schedule for the 2014 racing season. April 4 and April 11 are practice nights wwith first points night on April 18!
