A reading of Charlotte’s Web is about as close as most city kids have come to a blue-ribbon livestock and produce competition. But at this annual outdoor fest, they’ll get a glimpse of farm life firsthand—or at least a wonderful re-creation of it. Pie-eating and corn-husking contests, hayrides, carnival rides, lumberjack shows, a Bavarian garden, Irish and German folk bands, pig racing and the three-acre Amazing Maize Maze will make the big city seem far, far away to little ones. Big Apple Circus To-Go will set up their spectacle on-site, providing live entertainment for families, while ConEdison will post up at an ecology booth where green-thumbed kids can adopt a worm for their home compost bin and get in on free crafts. Admission does not include maze entry, carnival rides and games, or various other fair activities. All ages.
