West Side County Fair 2013


On Sunday, September 8, the Upper West Side got seriously countrified at Summer on the Hudson's annual West Side County Fair in Riverside Park, where carnival rides, animal encounters, games, live music, circus performers and more outdoor family fun turned the otherwise peaceful enclave into a folksy fest. Headlining the mainstage this year were Paleface, Tumbling Bones, The Second Hands, Laura Dunn, the Ghosts of Xmas Past and the Lady Circus.


RECOMMENDED: 25 can’t-miss September festivals
