Why not visit the Richmond County Fair?
When: Mon, September 3, 11am – 6pm
Where: Historic Richmond Town
There’s something different in the air at this year’s Richmond County Fair. You might say the event has gone to the dogs. Running, flying, and leaping dogs! This year, the 33rd annual spectacular will be headlined by World Series pitcher Milt Wilcox and his Ultimate Air Dogs. This acrobatic attraction features athletic dogs that soar 20 feet in the air and splashdown into a huge pool while performing feats of strength and agility.
Another exciting addition to the Fair is local sandman and reality TV star Matt Long. Long will create an epic sand carving near the Fair entrance. The surprise sculpture will take three days to construct. Children can watch it rise from the ground while getting their own fingers into the action. Long will be running mini-workshops, offering the kids a chance to create their own works of art.
One-day passes can be purchased at the Staten Island Time Warner Cable store for 20% off – $12 instead of the at-the-door price of $15.
Avid fairgoers, who often revisit, can buy three-day unlimited passes online at historicrichmondtown.org for only $20, a savings of over 50%.
As always, children 30” and under are free.
All the entertainment is part of the package: the AWE stage for young rockers, illusionists, reptiles, kiddie rides, costume characters, pony rides, acrobats, jugglers, the antique Advance delivery truck, flea circus, puppets, fire trucks, classic cars, traditional demonstrations, sand sculpture, Air Dogs and much more.
