Event Description

Founded in 1841  as the Queens County Agricultural Society, The Agricultural Society of Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties is one of the oldest agricultural societies in the United States. The Society has sponsored a fair on Long Island since 1842, The earliest fairs, sponsored by the Society were held on various members’ farms and vacant lots in the Hempstead and Mineola areas. In 1866 the Society acquired the original permanent fairgrounds on Old Country Road and Washington Avenue in Mineola, and constructed an exhibition hall, livestock barns, carriage sheds, a business office, and surrounded it with a castellated fence.  The centerpiece of the new fairgrounds was the large 8,000 square foot, cruciform Exhibition Hall, with a high central tower capped by a grand eagle weathervane. Inside a fancy iron fountain graced the center of the floor area that provided an exceptional exhibition space for the argricultural, horticultural and domestic arts.
