BOARD OF DIRECTORS
In October of 2019, the Fair became a 501c3, non-profit now known as The Rochester Country Fair, Inc. For many years, all the money the Fair raised was managed by the Town of Rochester through a revolving fund created each year at town meeting. Going forward, the Fair will be administering the financials. We have officially created a Board of Directors with a few of our very dedicated volunteers. Something you might want to remember; the Fair is run solely by volunteers who give up their time with their families for 11 months to plan and execute the Fair. So, when you come, please take the time to thank them when you are enjoying all the events.
As always, we would appreciate your feedback, comments and ideas. We are also always looking for additional volunteers to join our Fair Family….it really is a great time!
Fun and Games for the Kids!
The Rochester Country Fair has a great area for kids to have fun, and participate in games and activites!
ABOUT ROCHESTER COUNTRY FAIR
The Rochester Country Fair Committee was founded in 1999 by a small group of Rochester residents: Dianne Wood, Julie Koczera, Arthur Westgate, Chris Faustino, Duffy Clapp, Pat Lafleur, Slim Bernier, and John Lafleur. The original intent of the committee was to coordinate a Millennium Celebration, a celebration to welcome a new millennium and to reflect upon the one which we had just left.
Originally held at Plumb Corner, The Rochester Country Fair has become a successful Town event over the years thanks to the help of many hard working, dedicated individuals who donate their time, enthusiasm and community spirit. The Rochester Country Fair is funded solely by fundraising events and donations received from its supportive residents and local businesses.
The RCF Committee also awards annually two Higher Education Awards to one Rochester resident senior from both Old Rochester Regional High School and Old Colony Regional Technical Vocational High School who would be attending College in the fall.
