THE STRATHAM FAIR
In 1966, Stratham had “a party” to celebrate its 250th Anniversary.
Everybody had such a good time we’ve done it every year since.
THE TRADITION GOES ON: The Stratham Fair is one of the oldest Country Fairs in New England. What started as a 250th Anniversary Celebration with a Lobster Bake and some Horse Pulling for amusement, has grown into a family event that is attended by over 20,000 people each year. In addition to being a summertime tradition and event, the Stratham Fair is the major fundraising event for the Stratham Volunteer Fire Department. The Stratham Fair also provides fundraising opportunities for many of the youth groups and other Social Service Organizations in town.
TRADITION OF VOLUNTEERISM: Volunteers are what makes the Stratham Fair “NHs Finest”! The Stratham Fair is organized and run by volunteers. Each year Strathams Finest Volunteers work shoulder-to-shoulder with their neighbors, transforming Stratham Hill Park from an empty field into a vibrant “city”!
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE: Each year the Fair Committee searches out activities to be sure that there really is “something for everybody at the Fair.” This year will include a barbeque, Entertainers, and much more!
OLDIES BUT GOODIES: Those who have attended for years can be sure that they will find plenty of the old familiar events right alongside the newest ones! You’re sure to see the Horse Pulls and Lobster Festival that started it all, Oxen Pulls, 4-H Exhibits and Activities, the Miss Stratham Fair Pageant, the Pie Eating Contest, the Pig Scramble, the Chicken Bar-B-Q, Demonstrations, Carnival Rides and the Midway, the Sunday Night Fireworks Extravaganza and much more!!
You’ll find it all at the Stratham Fair… NH’s Finest!
