2013 NWE 0903 Yorktown Grange FairDubbed as Westchester County’s only true country fair, the 89th annual Yorktown Grange Fair has a full schedule of family fun and entertainment planned from Thursday, September 5 to Sunday, September 8 on the Moseman Avenue fair grounds, just past St. Patrick’s Church.

The theme of this year’s event is “Planting Memories” since besides carnival games, rides, food, shows and musical acts, the Grange Fair celebrates Yorktown’s agricultural heritage with livestock, produce, flowers and baking exhibits and competitions.

Some returning attractions include the watermelon and pie eating contests, hay rides, horsemanship competitions and the antique tractor parade, which will be held Saturday at noon starting at the Yorktown Community and Cultural Center.
