Out of concern for the health and well-being of the pet, the Essex County Fair does not allow pets on the fairgrounds. Specially trained dogs for the visually impaired are allowed. ALL animals (cattle, dogs, horses, sheep, cats, goats, swine, miscellaneous ruminants) that are brought on the fairgrounds MUST have proof of current rabies vaccination a minimum of 14 days prior to the start of the fair. This is by order of Essex County Department of Health.
out of concern for the safety of all fairgoers, the Essex county fair does not allow coolers, firearms, or drugs on the fairgrounds. Fairgoers found in possession of these items will be asked to leave the fairgrounds.
