The fairgrounds at Bowe Field open at 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 2, and the event runs through the weekend with a rodeo Saturday and the popular demolition derby Sunday.
 
Touch a Truck, which allows young children the opportunity to see inside large vehicles like fire engines and highway trucks, starts at 6 p.m. on Friday and will feature the Pittsfield Police Department's "Copsicle" ice cream and ice pops van. The children's pedal tractor contest takes place at 6:30 and there will be live music beginning at 7.
 
Gates open Saturday morning at 10 when the judging of adult sheep and goats begins and at 10 on Sunday with more livestock judging and the oxen pulls. 
 
The fair will feature judging and prizes for animals, produce, foods and crafts, along with vendors of food and items, carnival rides and games, craft activities, Western Mass Master Gardeners, live music  (including Terry a la Berry), performances, exhibits and demonstrations.
