  • Richmond County Fair
    August 30–September 1
    An old-fashioned county fair in New York City? Yes, indeed! A Staten Island tradition for three decades, the Richmond County Fair has got circus performers, crafts and rides for the kids (of both the mechanical and pony variety), live music, plenty of eats and contests demonstrating all the requisite fairground skills—intestinal fortitude (hot-dog eating), agility and endurance (potato-sack racing), culinary craftiness (pie baking) and, most important, agricultural acumen (including but by no means limited to best annuals and perennials, most-perfect corn, cabbage and beets, heaviest pumpkin and longest carrot). Plus, proceeds benefit Historic Richmond Town, itself a year-round attraction that offers a window into the City's past.
