Farm Days at The Afton Driving Park

Thank you to everyone who came out to visit us at the Farm Days at the Afton Driving Park this year! We hope everyone enjoyed their visit! Once the grounds is cleared, the fair board will take a much needed short break from planning and then regroup to start planning for next year. Thank you for your support!

Grandstand Events

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.
