Long Island Fair Coming to Old Bethpage Village
The Long Island Fair, recognized by New York State as the official county fair for Queens, Nassau and Suffolk County, is a festive, present-day event that captures the feel of a country fair consistent with the second half of the 19th century.

It originated at the Mineola Fairgrounds, which eventually became a court complex, and was moved to Roosevelt Raceway where rides and sideshows were added.
