Fairgrounds History

The Sussex County Fairgrounds Complex has served as the home to a wide variety of year-round, cultural, farm-related, athletic, and entertainment events and has provided a venue for tourism for almost 70 years. In recent years, The Fairgrounds Complex has attracted and increased the number of off-season events, bringing more and more visitors to Sussex County every year.

The large, well-maintained, park-like fields have been home to many cultural festivals including CrawFish Fest, Peter’s Valley Craft Fair and Champion of the Grill, Sussex County Horse Show, Spring Fest, and the Farmers’ Market, focusing on the bounty of the Agricultural Community.
