Queens County Fair pig races
Queens County Farm Museum, Queens Sunday September 23 2012 11:00 - 18:00
Get a little rural living without leaving the city limits at the 31st iteration of this down-home festival. For two days, the Queens County Farm Museum will become even more agrarian than usual with livestock competitions, pie-eating contests, awards for the fastest corn huskers and pig races, while Irish and German musicians will keep your feet stomping. While there, try to make your way through the Amazing Maize Maze ($9, children $5), a three-acre labyrinth, or take a spin on carnival rides. Glean tips on fashioning your own farm-to-table fare at a colonial cooking demo, or knock back a few at a Bavarian beer garden. To enter your own craft, vegetable, or baked or canned goods in one of the blue-ribbon contests, e-mail info@queensfarm.org.
