The Tunbridge World’s Fair is an annual event held in mid-September in Tunbridge, Vermont. The annual fair continues to this day with demonstrations of farming and agricultural traditions and culture, working antique displays, horse and ox pulling, horse racing, cattle and horse shows, junior exhibits, floral and 4-H exhibits, contra dancing, gymkhana, and many free shows.

The Tunbridge World’s Fair began in 1867 and has been held yearly for over 150 years. The first eight fairs were held in North Tunbridge, Vermont, while the following have been held in Tunbridge. The fair is currently chaired by Alan Howe, who took over from Euclid Farnham after the 2009 fair. Farnham had been president of the fair for over 30 years, and had made major efforts to change the fair from a “drunkards reunion,” with “girlie-shows” (strip shows) and unlimited alcohol, to a more family-friendly environment.
