2016 Town Report

In 2013 the Chester Town Fair Committee was created under the Chester Recreation Commission to continue with the traditional spirit of our annual town fair for our great community.

The 2016 Chester Town Fair was another great event where families had a chance to socialize and enjoy the food, fun and activities set up throughout the day.  Our continuing goal is to bring back the feel of yesteryear where the community comes together to enjoy the many festivities of the day into the night.

Our Parade was led by the Pinkerton Academy JROTC and Marching Band. We had great participation from local civic groups and organizations, including some beautiful vintage automobiles.

We had a slew of food and craft vendors and lots of field games and contests for the young and old. The Owens Family of Olde Homestead Farm brought to us a family friendly petting zoo.  Thanks once again to the Agricultural Commission we were able to keep our old and new favorites of Cow Plop Bingo and Chicken Beauty Contest as well as seeing Pepper Family’s beautiful calf.

Steve Blunt & Marty Kelley entertained our youth with some musical fun while Explore the Ocean World brought to us a touch a tank where families were able to be educated on ocean life.  Our newest addition to the Fair this year was the Midway which brought activities throughout the day including the climbing wall, jousting pit and our newest competition – the Corn Hole Tournament.

The evening entertainment began with another addition with Bingo under the Tent followed by SCARAB, the Journey Experience, and ending with our Fireworks Extravaganza which are absolutely the best around.


The Police Department worked tirelessly through the day to make sure everyone was safe both on the roads and in the fields.  The Chester Fire Department deserve a big thank you for managing and hosting the best fireworks show in the area.  Thanks to our Town Maintenance who was a big help behind the scenes and the Highway Department for their participation and demonstration.

The entire Chester Town Fair Committee would like to express our gratitude to all who made this year’s fair a huge success.  Thank you to all our volunteers who helped with all our activities and a huge shout out to everyone who came out early Sunday morning for cleanup.  It is wonderful to have such a great community that is willing to give an extra hand when needed.  Thank you !

We want to especially thank our generous 2016 Sponsors. Their contributions made it possible to add the additional entertainment and midway games we all enjoyed.
